The Tears of Love
By Stevie Jo Cacciatore 
for sister Cheyenne 

A poor little girl had lost a love.
“But why... ?” she thinks.
She finds a quarter near a wishing well
The well speaks to her and says,
“You can have any wish you want little girl,
but remember you can only make one wish.”

She thinks to herself “Let’s see,
I can have any wish I want but only one.”
She could wish for money or
a new car. Maybe even some new clothes.

But for some reason the little girl starts crying and says to the well,
“My one and only wish is for my little sister to
be safe in heaven. I don’t care for money and
things like that just as long as my little sister is
happy and safe in heaven.” So she threw the quarter
in the well as her tears and a big splash came.

The quarter didn’t do the trick, it was all the love
that came from her heart through her tears.

That one tear gave her that wish – the tears of love.
