And Fortune Smiled Upon Us...Once - Poem by Harlan Lovestone

It was unfortunate how you lost your fortune
the robbers and carpetbaggers
took the last of everything you owned
and I swept into town on a red robin
a rich man without need
yet a poor man without heart
at night the galaxies opened up for us
as bright and beautiful as the stars in your eyes
but that was then and this is now
when fate seemed to shine over us somehow
and fortune smiled upon us once
but shall it smile again?
