My First Love

It was a fine sunny day when I first met him,
Tall, dark and handsome, dimples on his cheeks;
I truly admired this man,
The wholeness in him brought thrill to my heart.

He was my first crush, my first love,
I loved his eyes glued on my eyes;
I could hear his heartbeat as mine,
His actions truly brought me pure delight.

Loving me so pure, caring for me so sure,
His palm on my cheeks, kissing me so tender;
His arms around my waist, hugging me so secured,
How would I forget that?
The joy it brought to my heart never went away.

But why did we have to say goodbye?
Why did we have to go separate ways?
The love that once we cared for
Had gone somewhere else.

I wished I could embrace you for the last time,
I wished I could see you one more time;
I'm just here waiting for you,
We won't forget each other, right?

Time goes by,
As more than two decades have passed,
Here in the middle of nowhere,
Even your shadow is unseen.

It was all my fault, my flaws are killing me,
Here inside my heart,
Where my love for you resides;
Once, you told me that you would wait for me...
All the doubts in your heart,
Surely fainted you to decide.

The gray cloud has turned into white,
Blooms and prunes have dried on each side;
Cry the loudest mourn, feel the hardest pain,
The unseen shadow shows up again.

Destined to meet you once more,
It's the most wonderful moment of my life;
Now that you're here,
I can almost feel your touch,
Even your lips too can't hide the longing inside.

I love to walk with you in a park,
With smiles on our faces, glows in our hearts;
Watching movies together, eating dinner by your side,
Simple things in life,
That once we both wished to happen in real life.

I love you so much, that's the only thing I know,
The love we have found inside,
Has been cherished between the two of us;
Nothing more I can ask for,
You've completed me that way.

You've made me laugh more than anyone else.
I'm the best me when I am with you,
You make me happy in a way no one else can,
Sounds familiar, isn't it?
That's how I feel every time we are together.

How happy my heart is,
The way you care for me once again;
I always feel safe and sound by your side,
The second time around,
Things just make more sense.

Remember the time when we first met?
Our souls began touching one another,
My first love that is always alive,
lives all the time in my heart;
You are recognized by my heart, right before my eyes,
I'll do anything for a second chance with my first love.
