Washington Park Rose Gardens, Portland, OR

Once upon a time, my heart wandered alone
My quest for love likened to an epic tale of old
Over land and water, my ride was endless
What I had to give was nothing but my best

     Once upon a time, I ached from my very core
     I called your name until my voice was no more
     A desperation of purpose swept through me
     Did you even exist? Something said to believe

Once upon a time, in loss and anguish
A tiny whisper I heard through deep mist
'Come hither', my heart heard your gentle call
And there you were, the vision of my all

     Once upon a time, you gave me this verse
     Your eyes dancing, your heart about to burst
     Before we had met, you wrote my heart's song
     Once upon a time, still you turn me on
