Once upon a time,
A fresh start with endless possibilities
Of finding happiness,
What everyone dreams of,
And lessons of trust, hope, and love.
”I love you.”
The words you had said to me like they were nothing.
They burned through my bones like a forest fire,
A fire that eventually died,
Because you did not have enough love
To fulfill this promise.
My journey had many obstacles
Which I learned to overcome.
I ran underneath the twinkling stars
Splatter-painted against the sky.
I inhaled the tranquil aroma
Of roses thriving in a garden.
I took in the little things life had to offer.
And now, I can truthfully say that
I found my happily ever after.
