Cobweb Memories


There are moments in our life, that shape who we are
Moments that come back, and replay, year after year
Moments where truth merges with lies
Moments that hurt and still surprise
Moments that remain behind your eyes

It's been years now, but deep in my mind
Hang cobweb memories, of her face, but no name
What's special about her, that makes me remember
Memories flow like movie scenes, all with her and I together

Scenes of us walking,   planning dreams and touching
Of breathes exploding into each others mouths
Of smiles and of laughter, sensual trembling and parked cars
Of school and her father, a time of lost innocence, when nothing but us mattered

First love comes, and stays a lifetime, Special love is first love,
First love comes, always at the right time, Special love is first love,

These are moments, that shape who we are
Moments that come back, and replay year after year
Moments where truth merges with lies
Moments that hurt and still surprise
Moments that remain behind your eyes

It all comes flooding back without concern, or fear or pain
It seems like only yesterday, that last kiss, without meaning, love, or passion

First love comes, and stays a lifetime, Special love is first love
First love leaves, is there ever a right time, Special love is first love

It's been years now, but deep in my mind
hang cobweb memories of her face, but no name.

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
