The reality of "Once Upon A Time"

Thu, 07/27/2017 - 16:54 -- AMikus

On long car rides
She chooses the music played
Carefully setting the mood
Using songs to portray emotion
She turns melodies into memories
The songs turn into time
Permanently capturing a moment
To be re lived forever
When listened to again
She re plays the melodies
of their past on dark nights
Determined to remember
Every moment spent together
She will hold on to every song
Every moment
Every memory
Because every second of time
Where they are together
Becomes the most beautiful thing
She has ever experienced
Every detail overwhelms her
With more love than she can fathom
She wants to remember the times
Where love was better
Than every fairy tale

Where real life exceeded

her wildest imagination


You know it's love when your reality vastly exceeds your sweetest dreams.

You are my real life fairytale.
