Not all stories are fairytales

Maybe the timing is not perfect

Maybe it’s not how you planned it 


The edges of an end

The start of a beginning 

Maybe you can’t draw a line 


Maybe you’ve been saying you’re not ready, your whole life


But in a moment 

The puzzle fits 

A flash from a future 

So full of laughs and smiles 

A feeling – 

“This is right”, 

And you want to put everything down

To take the plunge 


All the conversations that never end 

And all the sparks that could possibly fly –

All the rapports correlate 


This is your story, you didn’t get to write 

It’s the fairytale, you get to live 


Isn’t it better than you imagined 

Better than perfect?
