What Makes Fairy tales Last

Updated on March 23, 2013

What Makes Fairy Tales Last?

His eyes which once sparked flames grew dim to me
His smile which dazzled became hard to see
And in moments it was clear to believe
The boy who promised never to grow up was going to leave

His laugh carried a hallow echo through my heart
Lying next to each other we were worlds apart
And I Wendy, so badly wanted to relive
The magic Peter was so reluctant to give

No amount of Pixie dust could awaken his soul
As I kissed his lips I tried to make him whole
But he had no time for that, he had to grow
His destructive path began to toll

So here I stand, in front of the boy from another land
Trying so hard to understand, what makes a fairytale last.

      Just delightful and a bit sentimental. I sometimes would rather live in a world of fairy tales than this harsh real world.

      P.S. Change - So I here I stand to So here I stand

      Separate - eachother - each other

      Thank you for this. Some people dream, while others dream.
