Once Upon A Dream

 Once Upon A Dream

Once upon a dream…
Royal carriages and towering castles,
Princely robes and comely dresses,
Every moment of everyday
A fairytale come alive
That is all I ever wanted and exactly what I have now.
 
Once upon a dream…
Servants at my beck and call
Guards on all sides of me
When I walk down the aisle
With admirers and enemies alike
Watching in amazement and envy
 
Once upon a dream…
Exotic fruits and vegetables
Food in plates of gold and silver
Drinks in goblets of diamond
All set in impeccable order
On my table of oak adorned on all corners with rubies
Once upon a dream…
But that’s all it ever was and all it ever will be
A what-if, an if-only, an if-i-had
The would-haves, should-haves and could-haves
For now, it is almost over and the end, near
Death’s cold hands slowly settle over the heart
 
And in a single breath, my last once-upon…; dreams unfulfilled
The end…
