First Love


It happened then,
The tenth of June,
I recall now,
They played our tune,
It takes me back,
The day we met,
Love at first sight,
You don’t forget,
I heard your voice,
It’s with me now,
And it was raining,
Yes, and how,
I fell for you,
Right there and then,
I’m sweet sixteen,
And never kissed,
So this is what,
They say I’ve missed,
You’re in a band,
And sing the blues,
I never thought,
My heart I’d lose,
You’re just a lad,
Of seventeen,
The brownest eyes,
I’d ever seen,
And tall and dark,
And truly handsome,
You play guitar,
There’s no one dancing,
You look at me,
I walk on air,
I’m in the crowd,
You find me there,
My thoughts are racing,
Heart is too,
Why do I feel,
So scared of you,
I’m happy, yes,
I’m crying too,
And laughing,
Holding on to you,
Senses reeling,
Falling fast,
It’s such a shame……..

It didn’t last.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
