The Definition of True Love

“Wake up my dear it isn't time for you to go”,

Leaning down planting his lips on hers.

Time ticks by but she doesn't open her eyes

Still the same before her “true love’s kiss”.     

For tears now stream down their faces,

Down the ones that raised her.

He wasn't the one,

Her true love.

All they could do was cry and say goodbye

Each carefully placing a kiss on her forehead.

Suddenly her eyes fluttered open

 To see the people that truly love her.
