Confessions of Cinderella

Cinderella runs away fast
Knowing the magic shall not last
It is hard for dreams to prevail
For this is all but fairy-tale

The clock bangs announcing midnight
Time to bid farewells to her knight
Sadly she weeps, to no avail
For this is all but fairy-tale

Carrying out usual chores
She futilely hopes that he shows
But prince charming loses the trail
For this is all but fairy-tale


One Night in September

It was a cold September night
When you recited your vows to become another’s knight
It was all so sudden
Where was all this hidden
Who could have known
On a chilly Fall night you would be gone
Leaving behind a love of years
And many haunting memories
No, there are no regrets ahead
No, there are no tears left to shed
