An Answer to Lonely Nights


Grimm's Fairy Tales

She’s a wild
one when she’s mad,

A tiger with
slashing claws,

But very
reasonable and calm,

Once she has
time to pause,

 

A storm in
the mountains,

But a gentle breeze from the sea,

Her friends
fill her days,

Yet she
yearns to be free,

 

She believes
in fairy tales,

And all her
wishes coming true,

But she’ll
give her heart to a pauper,

As long as
he loves her too,

 

In her dreams she flits about,

Much like a
butterfly,

Sampling each
flower in a random way,

It’s always
worth a try,

 

When her
prince arrives,

She’ll
welcome him right in,

Her heart is
full and ready to share,

She’ll
disarm him with her grin,

 

He’ll be the
center of her universe,

As he strums
across her heart,

She’s ready
to join his life’s song,

And she’s eager
to do her part,

 

He’ll enter
her web carefully,

Knowing she
is a connoisseur,

He knows
exactly what he wants,

So he
accepts her honeyed lure,

 

Her words
are pure and clear,

Information
that yearns to be heard,

And he will
be there, face to face,

Listening to
every word,

 

When they’re
behind closed doors,

She’ll be
shy, bold, a little bit of a tease,

And he’ll
try the best he can,

A thousand
ways to please,

 

Her prince
has visited countless times,

And held her
in his dreams,

He’s watched
over her as she slept,

And planned
out his schemes,

 

Caressed her
cheek, each strand of hair,

Whispered sweet
nothings in her ear,

Words that
meant much to him,

Words she
could barely hear,

 

Words that were meaningful

Right from the start,

“You mean
the world to me,

I will give
you my heart,

And treat
you tenderly.”
