Some Stories

Some stories hide in the shadows
And fall in love
With other stories, for better or worse – –

And toss a bouquet of queries
For others to grab
In sickness and in health – –

Some stories survive,
Are kidnapped but set free
To be loved and cherished – –

Some stories forget their vows
And try to separate
Mother from child – –

And some stories wait
For another generation
To rewrite them.
