“Once Upon A Time”

Dedicated to Katen Dsy, my great and inspirational friend.💞

Days of wine and roses,
the way love used to be felt,
romance from the heart so genuine.

Is it just a four letter word,
something to keep us company in the night
when the world seems to be closing in on us.

Or is it Romeo and Juliet
to die for the soul of your lover,
because living without is certain death.

Is it knights in shining armor
saving the maiden from shattered dreams,
to live happily ever after in a forever embrace.

A prince’s kiss upon Cinderella’s lips
as the poison engulfs her spirit in sleep,
to savor the intimate journey of true destiny.

Whatever your belief in true love,
found in mysterious places of the dark,
unexpected meetings believed to be kismet.

Capture it when you find it,
protect it with your life’s blood,
keep the fairytale alive with a kiss of truth.

  1. So beautiful and amazing. I really loved this stanza:

    “Whatever your belief in true love,
    found in mysterious places of the dark,
    unexpected meetings believed to be kismet.”

    Very inspiring and from the heart. ❤
