First Love - Poem by Justine Keaton

It was late Sunday night when we said good-bye
I knew right then that my heart would cry...
You felt so cold, and it hurt me so...
I loved you so much, that I let you go...

A love so true, it felt so sweet...
For a year of my life, you swept me off my feet...
I tried everyday, to remind you of my love...
For I knew you were precious and sent from up above...

I held you every moment... I held you tight...
Praying you would always love me every day, and every night
But time went on, as it tends to do...
And with times passing, I fell even deeper for you...

Your love grew tiresome... it tore me apart...
And you broke every promise, when you broke my heart...
I couldn’t stop crying, it hurt me so much...
For I longed every moment to feel your gentle touch...

I gaze into your eyes, to see only gray...
there was no need for words... I knew what you had to say...
I held on to you, in the depths of my heart...
Regardless of how it tore me apart...

My love still remains, through the betrayal you’ve done...
Messing with my best friend, and having your fun...
I stood by your side, though you didn’t want me...
and I loved you so endlessly...

I still love you, but time’s mended my heart...
But never shall your memory part...
And you will always have a special place within my heart...

You will always be the first, who touched me so deep...
And in my heart, will I always keep...
memories of you and me...
together for eternity...

You taught me how to love and, you will always be my first love.
