Once Upon A Time - Poem by Danny Speicher

Last chapter closes this star-crossed saga
Full of laughter and love... heartache and tears
And the comedy becomes tragedy
The shepherd's son walks alone through the years

I do suppose we always knew the truth
A princess never falls for a pauper
Yet, their romance, it seemed so genuine
We hoped, perhaps, love would conquer proper

The King seemed wise from his throne far away
Saying marriage to paupers was unfair
For the princess deserved riches and fame
The pauper could never provide such fare

Oh, how, the pauper, he cried when she left
Remembering the happy days of yore
How he thought for certain her love was real
Thinking of her voice he'd come to adore

But, fairy tales are just fiction at best
And, love didn't win her heart in the end
That love, now, is just once upon a time
Perhaps faded... Perhaps always pretend
