If only life were like a fairy tale

If only life were like a book,
Like the one with Peter Pan
and Captain Hook;
Sinbad would forever sail…
If only in a fairy tale…
Cinderella, Jack & Jill,
Jack be nimble Jack be still;
Rainbows and Gingerbread Men,
We’d all be happy in the end.
Sleeping Beauty got true love’s kiss,
Snow White found her prince;
Ah… but there’s no reason,
There’s no rhyme;
life plays out in real time.
This is life… and it’s not to be,
Life is exactly what you see…
There is no dish with a spoon,
Running away under a moon.
As sleepy dreams drift off in time,
Thoughts of fairy tales and nursery rhymes;
I wish, I wish upon a star…
where it may be… near or far…
That all life’s dreams will never fail…
(“heavy sigh”)
If only in a fairy tale.
