First Crush - Poem by Stephen Loomes

My first childhood love
A beautiful person
From Heaven above
And a musical family
Taught her the score
And she was so precious
That she fell on the floor
It was then she was taken
To a building so old
We walked in the gardens
But the place was so cold
I looked at her eyes
Staring and blank
And wondered what had happened
To a girl of first rank.

Years later I met her
A bandaged dear soul
Fighting to recover
Before she grew old
I hoped she still had
The innocence within
Which made her a lady
With such a thin skin

Over years I kept in touch
From now and then
As she graduated with honours
And fostered her kin
As life thickened her skin
She learned many lessons
Which I never could
And I just hoped her heart
Hadn’t hardened to wood

And now when I see her
She has such a smile
I hope all the while
That she’s not got too hard
From rebuilding her soul.
