settle for the right one

We all have to settle for the right one,
each of us will one day choose one,
and in the choices you make,go for one,
Right job
Right girl,
Right boy,
Right husband,
Right wife material,
and settle for the right one,
The Sun,
settled for the right one,
rising at dawn,
setting at dusk,
Her brother the Moon
chose to do the exact opposite,
in the end,they both settled for the right one.
Your parents,
settled for one,two,three,...
you know better how many you are,
but they settled for the right one,
even if u the example setting 1st born,
forever spoilt last born,
only girl among boys,
only boy among girls,
or you are one of the late coming kids,
they say '' we don't know how it happened''
your friends,
settled for the right one,
they choose to praise you,
they choose to diss you,
they talk behind your back,
they talk right within your earshot.
but hey, 
they settled for the right one.
your family,
sisters and brothers
settled for the right one,
they love you, adore you,
look upto you,
seek your advice,
do you do the same?
and settle for the right one.
don't rush for them,
dont get one coz your friend 
just had one,
take your time and settle for the right one,
don't think that the adorable SMS's 
she sends you indicates her as the one,
maybe the one with mean texts
is just the one.
dont let coffee dates seal the one for you,
take your time..
and settle for the right one
i am writing this,
in hopes that you will find time,
settle for the right one 
and read this.
just remember,..
..... Settle for the right one....
