Once upon a time…

There was a little boy…Who loved a little girl

***

He carried her books…

And sang her songs…

All the melodies his heart did carry

***

Wrinkles formed on his tiny brow…

What if she didn’t…

He worried, somehow

***

Once upon a time…

There was a little girl…Who loved a little boy

***

She penned him notes…

Folded tightly in squares…

All the words her heart did carry

***

She blushed as he opened…

Her thoughts so true…

She worried, whatever might he do

***

Once upon a time…

There was a little boy…And there was a little girl

***

Who had no wrinkles…

Who had no worries…

Their only gifts were hearts so true

***

Everyday…

They walked together…

Hand in hand…

In love forever…

      1. BTW, I write on another site as well. It is called In the Raw. What say we give each other these alternate addresses? I just finished a post there re: trust issues in addiction. Title = Cultivating Trust.

        Your poem is nicely written, and not too heavy. I try not to read in too much.

      1. you too. i slipped and fell in the lake last night. my one boot filled with water. i dumped the water out but that was a cold walk back. i hear more cold is coming.

        saw another bobcat. this one was smaller and grayer and absolutely beautiful. she stood in the weeds watching me as i was approaching. i didn’t know it was a bobcat till she was less than 20 feet away. she wandered off slowly as i tried to take same pics that did not come out well. what a beauty. wish i could have gotten a good pic of her face.

        have a wonderful week too. bundle up.

      2. Oh! I’m so sorry. That does sound cold. I hope it wasn’t too far back.

        You have good luck with bobcats. She sounds beautiful. Perhaps you’ll see her again soon. Then you’ll have another chance at pictures. I saw an owl this evening just before the rain started. I didn’t think he would ever fly off. But he left about the same time that I did.

        Lots of layers for a few days. Thank you 😊

      3. only the second time i lost my balance in the water. no harm done. i even finished the walk. took a while to thaw out once back though.

        I will keep an eye out for that bobcat now. she may have been watching me often. that is the first i noticed her. she didn’t seem scared at all but did take off when i started walking directly towards her. o well, maybe next time.

        i guess your owl was watching you from a tree. they seem to get used to you after a while. it was cold out there tonight. no rain here yet but a strong north wind was blowing. good to be back inside.

        layers work well. double hoodies seems as good as a coat. a coat over double hoodies is even better on those bitter days. i am sure the dogs enjoy the walk, cold out or not.

        Always good to be back inside. bye for now.
