Once Upon A Time - Poem by Heather Burns

Once upon a time, I made a
silhouette,
Placed it in a picture frame,

So I would not forget,
Many years it stayed there,
Behind glass, with tender
care.

Then one day, I looked,
The picture frame was bare.

Like a fairy tale, came true,
My eyes were full of you.
