Timeless Fate

Count the blessings dropped to ground,
     those that fell upon your floor,
Thank the martyred messenger
     who kept watch outside your door.
He’d throw pennies in the cup
     of a blind man by your gate,
Thought for sure he was the one
      that would save you from your fate.

Listen to the dreaming songs
      carried by winds from afar,
They tell stories to those few
     that know who you really are.
Many miles now stand between
     a beginning and an end,
Travel becomes promise lost
     when you’ve left behind a friend.

Think about the setting sun
     disappearing in the east,
Shadowed footprints follow close,
     made by some that were released.
You’ve been there and you’ve done that,
     on a journey through your youth,
And like those that passed before
     there been vacancy in truth.

Curtains close around the frame
     which still holds the heart of stone,
Fallen pictures on the floor
     reflect of the times alone.
Again the blind man appears
     just before the hour’s late,
Holding out his rusted cup
     he tips pennies o’er your gate.
