A little girl who dreamed of fairy tale endings,
never ending stories with heroes who defeat the villains,
I thought you would storm the castle on mounted steed
Delivering true love’s kiss in time to save me.
The years bled by and darkness fell
clouding the dreams,
fading to nightmares,
innocence seceding to gray reality.
I never learned what true love looked like,
I’d never seen an unconditional bond.
I was told a man would clip my wings,
if I had dreams to guard them jealously.
I stopped searching, believing,
that two souls could meet and know
they found the piece of themselves they’d been missing
and their fragmented hearts were finally whole.
Singing at a frequency no one else could hear
I wandered through living a colorless life
my voice disappearing in the tempo of years
I almost stopped singing until your whispered reply.
I knew when I looked in your eyes,
our songs harmonized,
our bodies magnetized,
I’d met him who could make two one.
I never expected the depth of this feeling,
terrifying and freeing,
together we’re better than we’d ever be alone.
A man of honor in an honor less world,
you proved the grey reality’s boundaries exist.
You make me brave.
Best of all you let me forgive myself.
