First Kiss - Poem by Jesus James Llorico

'It was those times when I was young
That everything seems nice and beautiful
As trees are greener and flowers so bright
That the beauty of surroundings so right
And play was the only thing in mind

So it was that one pleasant afternoon
When mom took me and my brother outside
To play, so she can speak to our lady neighbor
Who happens also to have a young daughter
Whose age precisely is the same as I am

We enjoyed our plays and have so much fun
That it's time to play the game of hide and seek
The girl and I hid inside a big mattress
That leans beside the concrete wall of the house
And we sat there waiting for what may come

I still do not know what really happened
For we just kissed and then laughed quietly
And then we kissed again, a few more times
Until we are caught by my older brother
Who I know was taken by surprise

I followed him around and pleaded with him
I will do anything just not to tell our mom
But it was to no avail as he told them so
But to our surprise they did not get angry
And we just continue with our normal play

It was a kiss I will always remember
Clearer than any nostalgia I have known
Though it may be plain, sweet and innocent
It was my first real kiss when I was five
Back in the year nineteen sixty five.'
