Alone I stand, alone with Fate.
My shadow lies ahead, to wait
For me to come, perhaps too late.
My Past flits by, my Future grows;
I ask myself: “Which way to go?”
And answer still: “I do not know.”
Alone I stay, and softly sigh
To watch my childhood flutter by,
Then turn away, and wonder why.
My changing world through dreams I saw,
As onward e’er my thoughts they bore,
But now my dreams are dreams no more.
And now alone with Fate I stand,
Soon to be taken by the hand
And led away to other lands.
Yet what my Future hides away
‘Neath golden shades of unknown days
I cannot know, for who can say?
I only know that this must be,
Its light is not for me to see,
For this will be my Destiny.
