Fortune (Hensley Ken)

Although now it seems like never When we were even less together I appeared to have my back to the wall And the way things were going There was no way of knowing If I was having any luck at all Silently, suddenly Standing before me An old man awaited his death Part of me cried out But none turned to hide For no curses distorted his breath It was then I took to thinking And my hands took to writing And my dreams came In answer to the call Waiting in wonder My toughts ran like thunder Could it be that I've been wasting my mind I grew sort of cold As the vision unfolded Bursting the shackles of time So I gathered what I had I took a look at What was going down And it made me kinda sad Seeing all the circles Going slowly round And the stars sang in harmony It was so perfect that It laid me down And the rainclouds Were tossed away Seemed like the world was lost And I would drown in its sound Somewhere along the way I don't know where I had really believed I was poor Looking, not seeing The point of my being When all of my fortune is sure
