Why does that word scare me so

Maybe because

I’ve watched so many

Come and go

Family members pass

Friendships fade

Marriages die

Lovers leave

I’ve met someone

Who makes me

Want to be brave again

Believe in

Happily ever after again

My romantic mind

Dares to shout

“I want the fairytale!”

My logical mind whispers


My heart speaks softly


A vision flashes before my eyes

This man takes my hand

And we walk together

Along a mountain path

Into a brilliant sunset

My heart swells with hope

It’s rhythmic pounding

Drowning out

The chatter

Of my mind

E.A. Fussell
