Poem: Reality of Love

 

Do dreams really come true, or are they but a fable,

best shared by old timers, gathered round the dinner table?

Should I be more realistic, about my romantic goal,

knowing that heartache reigns, taking its toll?

*

Hope keeps me trying, to beat the odds at every turn,

even though warm fuzzy feelings, give way to heartburn.

Oh, to be young again, when pragmatic thought was unknown,

romance and fantasy ruled my mind, so I wouldn’t be alone.

*

One day I awoke from my illusion, running into the wall of truth,

after my parents had raised me in a symbolic, sound-proof booth.

Despite parental intention, reality became the master of my universe,

then romantic aspirations came, with risk of seductive curse.

*

Please do not dismiss the existence of true love in your life,

I believe there are suitable women to be my future wife.

But, the vision of a beauty queen, with a perfect disposition,

might turn out to be the girl next door, leading an inquisition.

Readers: All satire aside, it is important to find the right life partner, not just anyone to replace the loneliness of a single life (for some people). Choose wisely, my friends. (Dave)

“He who finds a wife finds a good thing And obtains favor from the Lord.” – Proverbs 18:22

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.” – Proverbs 31:10-12 (KJV)
