Once, upon another time; I gazed on love with trusting eyes;
and, as the seasons came and went; I walked beneath blue, endless skies,
believing love was fair, and kind to those in love... this truth was clear;
though, they said Love is never easy... wise words I chose not to hear.

Once, upon another time; across a star-drenched, velvet night,
two heart-thoughts touched in harmony; and sparked a flame to burn so bright
across the endless miles... or so, it seemed; those bright, sweet early days
but, each rose has its hidden thorns; not seen by the enraptured gaze.

Once, upon another time; it seemed we had the dream, declared;
to walk together in the Sun; two hearts as one... two hearts that cared.
But, then... the days grew longer; and her silences became the same;
"Now you see me... Now, you don't; So, was it really, just a game?

Once, upon another time; I gazed on love with trusting eyes;
I still believe that love is kind; but, then... it's really no surprise;
long-distance love... a fragile hope; it has no reason, and no rhyme;
But, still, I sometimes wonder... what if ?
Once, upon another time.

You so often speak what my heart wants to express but cannot. I understand this poem with my whole being.

I sometimes wonder what thoughts might be able to find my mind if it wasn't overflowing with 'what if's. *S*

Beautiful write, my friend!

Not an easy situation but true love will prevail. And wonderful relationships have come out of long distance love.   A beautiful write that reminds me of the way another English poet I know writes.  Well done and well penned.

Breathtakingly beautiful.

Life isn't about how to survive the storm...
But how to dance in the rain.
