The Bell of Fate

The road I walk is long and cold
Week by week, day by day
Always searching for the gold
As my life slips away

The road I choose is unforgiven and hard
So many mountains to climb
Always, always on my guard
Listening for the bell of fate to chime

The road I wanted slipped out of sight
Collapsing under pain and loss
Now my road is as black as night
And I can’t put down my cross.
