Once upon a time,
There was a young man,
And a beautiful young woman.
He wasn't clinically depressed,
And she didn't have leukemia.
He didn't want to die,
And she had the choice to live.
He was on the way to his success,
And she was on the path to her dreams.
the two complimented each other perfectly.
They helped each other reach their dreams.
He wrote his music,
And she wrote her literature.
They traveled the world,
He performed to an audience,
And she would never forget who he became on the stage.
She explored the cities her most admired writers grew up in,
And he would never forget that perfect curve upon her lips,
Which was her beautiful smile.
After years of seeing the world and living their dreams,
They finally settled down on a quiet shore,
Away from the city.
They lived modestly,
And peacefully.
They had two daughters,
And maybe a son.
They raised their children,
And watched as they, too,
Reached their dreams.
And every moment of this life was absolute bliss,
Neither regretted a moment of their time.
Never had a greater love existed,
Than the love between these two.
And after many long, happy years,
When the time came,
The two left the world,
And the Lord took them into His kingdom,
Where they remained,
And they lived happily ever after.
