My Wonderland ~ Remembering


Happiness, Sadness, Kindness, Knowledge
and all the others including Love,
one day it was announced
to the feelings that the island would
sink, so all prepared their boats and left.
Love was the only one who stayed.

Loved wanted to preserve
until the last possible moment.
When the island was almost sinking,
Love decided to ask for help.

Richness was passing by Love
in a grand boat.
Love said, "Richness, can't you
take me with you?"
Richness answered,
"No, I can't. There's lots
of gold and silver
in my boat...and there is
no place there for you."

Love decided to ask Vanity
who was passing by in a
beautiful vessel.
"Vanity, please help me!"
"I can't help you, Love.
You are all wet and might
damage my boat," Vanity answered.

Sadness was close by so
Love asked for help.
"Sadness, let me go with you."
"Oh love,
I am so sad that I need
to be by myself."

Happiness passed by Love too,
but she was so happy that she did not
hear when Loved called her!

Suddenly, there was a voice,
"Come Love. I will
take you." It was an elder of Love.
Love felt so blessed
and overjoyed that he even forgot
to ask the elder her name..
When they arrived at dry land,
the elder went her own way.

Love realizing how much he owed
the elder asked Knowledge, another elder,
"Who helped me?"
"It was Time," Knowledge answered.
"Time?" asked Love.

"But why did Time help me?"
Knowledge smiled with
deep wisdom and answered,
"because only with time
and wisdom are you capable
of understanding how
great love is.
