Where the Love Ends Well

A Coming Fairy Tale or Nursery Rhyme

Where the Love Ends Well

Imagine a quaint cottage, hidden in the woods
With big arch windows, and a sill for baked goods 
Inside, I would hide, content away from sight 
Waiting for fateful day for my beloved knight

We all know fairy tales, and how the stories end
Happily ever after, or so they pretend
But I revel for a love with security
A blissful haven without obscurity

Hold me close in floral fields with loving words
Tell me secrets of forever, I’ve never heard 
Convince me the prince is honest with his charm
And when he’s on bended knee, he means me no harm

Once upon a hurtful world, I lost reality
Living in a fantasy, in hopes to heal me
Yet, I can bake a pie, with twinkle in my eye
And kiss Georgie Porgie, while he makes me cry 

Perchance, if I get to dance with Prince Chivalry 
I hope his confidence rubs off on silly me 
For I truly believe there’s a coming fairy tale
Or a nursery rhyme, where the love ends well

So Jill weary from her tiresome flight
tries the first big bed 
but no its too hard
then the middle bed 
alas its too soft
then climbs upon the small one and zzzzzz

Cherie leaves her friend for the eventide 🤣😍❤️

A Lonely Journey

Cheerie! 
I LOVE your world! Can I join the you and the others there, also??!! Please! 
I'll bring snacks! 
Honestly, I love your mind, and the way you think, and therefore, the beautiful poems it turns out. That was gorgeous, and cleverly written, and filled with so much love, and emotion. You're amazing! 
The last 2 stanzas are particularly amazing. What a fantastic stanza, describing your pain using that rhyme. Brilliant! 
And don't EVER think you're silly, you're awesome, and there IS a fairytale coming for you, every beautiful princess gets one. 

Lovely! 

Love and hugs, 

Matthew.

My Dear Cherie,

In a cottage so secluded
I await for my Soulmate to appear
The birds begin a serenade
I know that he is near

.
I look out the kitchen window
He approaches, a smile upon his face
I realize that he truly loves me
Soon all my angst he will erase

All my love,
Larry xxx

HI dear Larry, I often think life would be so much simpler if it could turn out like a romantic fairy tale with  happily ever after ending....I think it can if we work very hard at it and have faith and hope to make choices to get us there....lol.  I have always loved the Prince coming to the rescue in life situation, ever since I was a girl, and I guess that mentality stays no matter how old we are....I love your verses that express that true love wins in the end...Thank you for substantiating that in your scenario, and also in your own life with dear Linda as your constant soulmate who inspires your love.  Bless you.  Love n Hugs, Cherie ;)

Our Dear Cherie,

What beautiful words to receive on this most loving celebration, Valentines Day.  Linda and I read it together, and after that, she turned around and laid a big kiss on my lips.  Thank you for acknowledging our special bond.

All our love,
Linda and Larry xxx
