We are romantics at heart

Little girls in white veils.
Wearing Mummy’s high-heals.
They dream of the future.
Of walking down the aisle.

Dreaming of Prince Charming.
To be swept off one’s feet.
He with a romantic proposal.
Romance knocking on love’s door.

We are romantics at heart.
To be wooed during courtship.
Wine, dined and bouquets.
The budding of a romance.

But dreams can diminish.
And romance become elusive.
Yet, we chase after the dream.
Will romance lead us to love?

A vision of loveliness this lass.
Even if it rains, she is radiant.
This lass walks down the aisle.
Today she’ll wear his ring.

Her wedding day.
Romance at its best.
Tears of joy flows.
Love radiates, she radiates.

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. In recent years, the younger generation have added on to include spouses from the Philippines, Nigeria and Russia. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
