Once Upon a Time,



the world was different



What seems like trouble, was brushed away,



in careless games, that came each day





Once Upon a Time, we all had dreams,



Dreams we would never, ever let go.



When no one believed us, when no one cared



They kept us going, we showed no despair.




Once Upon a Time, like a butterfly's wings,



we cherished each moment, we never looked back.



Once Upon a Time, like a passing song,



we watched it slip, watched it go.




In a land of magic,



I remember laughing, I remember crying.



Once Upon a Time, I remember not knowing



not knowing that one day I'd look back




And then I'd remember,



Remember and wonder,



how quickly this life, took away what was then,



how I woke up, woke up a little each day,



and how one day Once Upon a Time,



had left me and gone.

"Unable are the loved to die, for love is immortality" ~Emily Dickinson

"The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain"
~Kahlil Gibran

This is simply beautiful... and wonderful... and all synonyms of those two words! It has the sad beauty of a memory of a happy moment, that went away. It's really well written and blended with emotion. The last two lines are my favorite.
