When Was the Last Time?

When was the last time, friend,
when you truly felt your heart melt,
just about ready to burst forth
and grace the world with a rainbow?

When was the last time,
that you felt that, oh so finally,
after so many, long years, that
true love had finally found you?

When was the last time,
that you recognized how deep and
wonderful another can be, if only you
take that time needed to get to know them?

When was the last time,
that you told someone you loved them,
accepted them, embraced them, swore
your heart and soul to them - when?

When was the last time, sister?
when was the last time, brother?
when was the last time, mother?
when was the last time, father?
