A Bed Time Story - Poem by Dorothy (Alves) Holmes

Once upon a time
Once upon a dream
Once upon a heart break
Once uppon a tear
The world closed down.
Where were all the fairy god-mothers?

    Cute little poem with a poignant question.
    I like it.
    However, one of the UPON words has an extra P.

    Delightful reading. Once upon a time does envisage bedtime, but this ends up to be a wake up call. (Report) Reply

    Dorothy, short, sweet and to the point. Where have all the fairy godmothers gone? I don't think they allotted me one. If they did she lost her way. Lovely little poem. Thanks for sharing it.
