Today there’s something wrong,

Misalignment in the stars,

Numbers that will not add up,

A North wind bringing chill.

Today there is no calm,

A restlessness untamed,

Cards that count for nothing,

A curse upon my name.

Today I walk in shadow,

No scar upon the land,

A fortune told in whispers,

By silver changing hands.

Today the walls closed in,

I stepped upon the cracks,

Faces from the past in trees,

Smiled down with mocking laughs.

Today I read of fate,

In runes cast by the gods,

Of lives both blessed and blackened,

And futures robbed and lost.

Today my eyes see clearly,

Today there’s something wrong,

I turned to face my future,

But you, my love, were gone.
