“Fairy Tales”

Once upon a time

a little prince ran away

following his love as she left.

Just a boy, he couldn’t find her

in the crowd outside the walls

and was soon lost in the people.


When the King and Queen

noticed their son was gone

a search party was

sent immediately to

scour the kingdom

until they found him.


Ten long years

they looked for

the lost little prince,

last seen following

his broken heart’s beat

into the dusty sunset.


One morning he came

out of the rising dawn,

a man of his own,

but he wept when he saw

the King and Queen

and how they had aged.


His mother embraced him,

crying out and not letting go,

touching him here and there

to reassure herself he was.

He looked into her eyes

and a last tear fell from his.


‘Can’t I ever be with her?’

He asked softly, looking away.

‘O, sweet boy’ his mother cried

‘I don’t know love’s secrets.

Even if I did, I wouldn’t want

to see them written here.’


‘Sometimes love waits

and wonders and watches

distant hilltops for a sign.

You do not have to search

to find that sort of love.

Sometimes it just comes back.’


‘That is all I know,

so come inside now,

out of this cold weather,

and sit with me and

tell me all your stories,

all the things you’ve done.’
