They say every princess has her prince charming.
But he’s not superman,
so I’ll just keep waiting.
At times I find my patience fading…
it’s a long time-span!
They say every princess has her prince charming,
a knight in armor shining—
yet armed with just a frying pan?
So I’ll just keep waiting.
I try to see the silver lining…
will he fly in like Peter Pan?
They say every princess has her prince charming,
but his love is what I’m craving,
not some stupid “game plan!”
So I’ll just keep waiting.
And all my love I’ve been saving
for that special man.
They say every princess has her prince charming,
so I’ll just keep waiting.


The author's comments:

This is a fun little poem I wrote about the frustrations all of us girls have undoubtedly experienced at some point in our lives...where's Mr. Prince Charming??? We were told when we were younger that for every princess there is a prince, and many of us believed that. Yet...unfortunately that isn't always how life works. I once saw a quote that said "One day your prince will come. Mine just took a wrong turn, got lost, and is too stubborn to ask for directions," and it really amused me...it was part of the inspiration for this poem :) Hope you like it!!
