It's Just An Illusion

Written by: Lori Hopkins

Romantic love
A cunning illusion 
Causing pain and much confusion
Real love is growing old together
Enjoying sunny days 
Enduring stormy weather
Romantic love
It's just a notion
Real love is compromise 
Real love is devotion
Romantic love is fleeting
Leaves you lonely
Leaves you weeping 
Real love makes you feel secure
but fantasy and reality often blur
When the flames die down
Will we stick around
When we are old and bent
Will we cherish the time we spent
Romantic love can hurt like hell
So know the difference
Know it well
