First Love - Poem by Chantel Lara

Have you ever lost your first love
To the god above?
And he's all you can think of

When he made you so happy
Around him you never felt crappy
And it all sounds kind of sappy

But the love we had was forbidden
We always had to keep it hidden
Thought we'd find a way but i guess we didn't

Now all I have is pain
From losing you what do i gain?
I suppose this all sounds pretty lame

You were like a beautiful swan
But now that your gone
All I do is cry at the break of dawn

I know our love was true
The moments we had were few
But our love still grew

Our bond is unbreakable
The love I have for you is unshakable
Our love is unmistakable

I'll hold you in my heart forever
The things i'm saying aren't clever

I'll love you even after death
I just wish I was with you when you took your last breath

Topic(s) of this poem: death, first love, love

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this shortly after the man I loved passed away. I may be young but I do know what love is.He was a couple years older so we couldn't be together but we planned on getting married after high school. But a tragedy happened when he got shot in front of his house. Now, all I can do is remember him and succeed in life like he wanted me to.
