We all need to believe that good things can happen ….
A Place of Happy Endings I wanted to believe in fairy tales, Where a perfect magic spell Cast from a passing fairy’s wand Would soon make all things well. Somewhere across the Universe, There must be a corner set aside For the keeper of happy endings, Who could send them far and wide. So I took a walk alone As though it was commonplace, To be embarking on a journey With a mystery to embrace. And suddenly, beneath my feet The ground was paved with gold And I felt compelled to follow As I saw the path unfold. My feet, they trod so lightly There was no weight to hold me back, Just a gentle breeze to steer me As I kept upon the track. A kaleidoscope of colour Played against the sky And all the world seemed brighter As the landscape slipped on by. Peaceful doves perched And invited me to wait Where a tangle of roses arched, Above a gilded gate. Through it I glimpsed a different world; A green and bountiful space, Where rules had never mattered Yet order was in place. It was a garden full of people Wearing a harmonious face, With room enough for everyone Of every colour and race. Forgiveness was the way here, And with it, acceptance grew From love, that was unconditional, And kindness was all that it knew. Strength came from gentle strangers Who let me stop awhile; I had found a world that touched me And I saw wise men smile. This was where the brightest of dreams Would become reality, A haven for all the lost souls Who yearned just to be free. And so I knew this place was real For I had held it in my hand; It had taught me to believe And then, to understand. L.M.H
