Love's Fairytale

Long ago on dreamy nights

I dreamt the dream of love’s delights.

I fixed my wishes to a star,

And wondered, were you near or far?

The sweetness of those wishes grew

As hope for all that would be you

Held firmly deep within my heart,

I waited for my life to start.

And then the day had come at last.

The wish I wished had come to pass.

And better than I could have known,

Was you my love, now my own.

No wish could I have ever made,

Nor heart’s prayer was ever prayed,

Which could prepare me for the gift

I found in you . . . my life, my wish.

So fairytales, they do come true.

I found mine when I found you.

And long ago on dreamy nights,

I dreamt the dream of love’s delights.
