I read some place that if you want your kids to be creative, give them a taste of fairy tales. With that, they have something to look forward to, a ‘happily ever after’. Do you remember your story book? Do you remember how you used to look at them for the umpteenth time and try to visualize the whole scene? You starting dreaming, you made a world for yourself that was just perfect; free from any malice of any kind.
Now that we are here, all grown up, seeing life more practically that we ever have, do you still believe in some of those dreams? Do you think there’s a world out there somewhere, where everything you imagined as a child exists?
Let’s get on a roller coaster ride down the lane that takes you to the world which you left far behind. It’s still there, you just have to close your eyes and believe.
I’m the damsel in distress, the sad girl who has been waiting a life time for you to come and sweep me right off my feet. And when you did come, you weren’t a knight in shining armor. You stepped in, silently and surely, knowing what you were here for. Your certainty about a probable us had me going for you.
Like a princess locked up in a high tower, I wait for you to fight the odds and come rescue me. Scary dragons and wicked witches combined aren’t enough to keep us apart; that’s what I love about loving you. It’s just so powerful!
I don’t expect a prince when you finally find me. I know you today like I have known you for years and years, and when you’re finally here with me, I’ll know it in my heart. Even if you’re a prince in disguise of an ugly frog…
Just like Jack and his beanstalk, let’s find a place for us up in the clouds far, far away; where I can look at the stars with better clarity, where they will shine brighter for us and where it’s just you and me. Walking up in the clouds with you… Ah I’m getting goose bumps just thinking about it!
I pricked my finger on a spindle and have been gifted with a fate of endless sleep. Will you come and save me from this eternal slumber? Awaken me in all my senses, show me what’s like to be truly alive, stay by me and love me.
Kiss me and break the spell.
Will I make it to one of your three precious wishes if you had a genie lamp? Will you wish “us” into reality?
Time will test us, from wicked witches to fire breathing dragons; from being confined in the sea to being locked up in towers of a far off land; from poisonous apples to pricking spindles; from being bounded by the luxuries of the Sultan’s castle to having to live in with a price in the shape of a beast… Come what may; we’ll make it through.
You just have to believe and have faith in me.
I love you for all the things you do for me; how you fight the odds and risk your everything over something as fleeting as we have right now. You bring it all to life and you make everything worthwhile. I love this sense of purpose!
Fate, destiny, crystal balls, charms, stars, dreams, the lines in your palm… everything told you I existed somewhere. You heard my beating heart just like I have been hearing yours all this time.Souls interwined…
This beautiful story written by God’s Hands is our destiny and now that you are here, it’s finally complete.
I want us to be the fairy tale little children read. I want this story to be read and lived over and over again for countless years to come. People may not know from where it all began, but they should know how and where it all led to. I want this to be a wonderful book that ends with “and they lived happily ever after”. But then, I’d never want the book to end. Let our ‘happily ever after’ be a wonderful beginning of every thing wonderful. I want little girls to know that happily ever after is never the ending; it’s the beginning.*smiles*
“You know how when you were a little kid and you believed in fairy tales, that fantasy of what your life would be, white dress, prince charming who would carry you away to a castle on a hill. You would lie in bed at night and close your eyes and you had complete and utter faith. Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, Prince Charming, they were so close you could taste them, but eventually you grow up, one day you open your eyes and the fairy tale disappears. Most people turn to the things and people they can trust. But the thing is its hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely cause almost everyone has that smallest bit of hope, of faith, that one day they will open their eyes and it will come true.”
What does your little fairy tale tell you?
