She found her heart one day beneath an old sweater
That was lost in the attic of her yesteryear
Collecting dust of memories long forgotten
She took it back for want of love that she found pure
Across the sea
Another heart did beat
In a young man
Whose love for her
Would make their lives complete
Together they would rule the world
Two hearts, one love intwined
To share this blessing they have found
Heaven on earth, defined
Holding hands in the park
sipping wine after dark
They were married last spring
Now, they live happily by the ocean in a unique home which he built out of several shipping containers. She’s a thriving romance novelist, writing from her office which opens to a courtyard garden, in the center of their house. Together, they share stories in real time – a day in the lives of two dreamers who took a chance to embrace true love.
The best is yet to come. Believe.
