Journey of the Heart

Sometimes when I realize how many years have passed
I wonder how that happens, how time won’t wait or last
My mind goes back to early youth, a child then was I
Whose job it was to play outside and swing up to the sky

I always liked to daydream about my charming prince
Who’d ride upon his trusty steed and offer Junior Mints
I was in love with Vincent from age four until thirteen
One time I asked him who he loved best- me or Kathleen

In high school I am sad to say, my focus hadn’t changed
Depending on which lad I liked, a marriage was arranged
Oh this was done inside my head, my suitor never knew
But I was sure that one day soon, I’d meet my love so true

Many a prince enchanted me throughout the coming years
There were dates and don’ts and heartbreak and many, many tears
Still my romantic nature knew that one day soon I’d find
My knight in shining armor; loving, handsome and kind

It took nearly forty years to find my handsome prince
We met in eighty seven and have been together since
Twas the second time around for us but like a fairytale
We rode into the sunset and loved each other well

The in-between years were fraught with much regret
But I have two lovely children I’d never not beget
I love them with a passion that every mother knows
And always want the best for each is how this story flows

The moral is for you who dream and wish upon a star
To live your life with purpose; don’t lock your broken heart
One day you may realize your dream is coming true
That you may gain your fondest dream is my sole wish for you
