Your First Lesson In Love


Though like yesterday's water that's washed down the drain
Sweet memories of first love with us do remain
Of the beautiful teenager with dark brown shoulder length hair
Blowing in the breeze of the warm summer air
With her you only ever had a passing hello
And she was the one you never did get to know
But each time you see her walking on the street
You felt the love tingle and your heart skipped a beat
You remember your disappointment when for the first time you see
Her hand in hand walking with a young chap enjoying his company,
In your mind's eye you had seen her as an untainted rose
Your first lesson in love such is life one suppose
Of your first lesson in love the memories with you stay
But every tomorrow for you is a new day.

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
