Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Time


When I was a child I dreamed of, “Once Upon a Time”.

When one day I’d find love and life would have its rhyme.

I remember softly kissing and holding my pillow tight.

I imagined a wonderful love as I lay in bed each night.


I would lie and wonder if there really was such a thing.

That would fill my soul and cause my heart to sing.

Then “once upon a time” came and caught me by surprise.

I was sure when it happened because I saw it in her eyes.


A look I had always dreamed of in those days so long ago.

Her eyes reflected love with a soft and longing glow.

Was she searching for the same things that I had searched for?

In search of a love so great that it causes the heart to soar?


The answer came in the form of a passionate kiss.

Just one moment that sent my being into shear bliss.

I had finally found my “once upon a time” love.

Now my life has rhyme and my soul soars high above.
