Once Upon A Time

Once upon a time 
In a world of make believe
There lived a little girl
Very young and so naive

In her world, there were no tears
No broken hearts to mend
For she believed that fairytales
All had a happy end

As she grew she always dreamed
That one day she would meet
A young and handsome prince 
Who would sweep her off her feet

He would fall in love with her
Fill her life with laughter
Nothing would go wrong 
And they’d live happy ever after

Then one day her prince arrived
And got down on one knee
Professing all his love, he asked her
“Will you marry me”

Walking down the aisle 
She thanked the Lord above
For making all her dreams come true
In finding her true love

As the years passed by
And children came along 
Her husband seemed to change 
Things started to go wrong

She didn’t understand
Why he left her all alone
Why he didn’t call her
On the nights he wasn’t home

The smiles disappeared
And laughter finally died 
She could have filled an ocean 
With the many tears she cried

Suddenly her world had changed
Her life was torn apart
This handsome prince she married
Had finally broke her heart

Even though the pain at times
Was more than she could bare
She clung onto to the hope 
This wasn’t love...just an affair

But one day all her hopes and dreams
Were washed into the sea 
He left her and their children
For another family

Her life was shattered, torn apart
How could she go on
When everything she’d ever known
And ever loved was gone

A pain inside so physical
Like a knife inside her chest
So sad, so hurt, so wounded
So emotional depressed

She somehow had to find the strength
To raise her kids alone
And wake up every day to know
He wasn’t coming home

And as the years passed by her
The pain began to heal
But finally she realised
That fairytales weren’t real...
