Unconditional Love - Poem by Alex Perez

I remember my first love that I had back then,
She was everything to me; she was my best friend.
Every time that we made love, I fell right into her embrace, I’m pretty sure I’d do anything to see her face to face.
But she’s not here because I let her get away,
I chose to leave when she wanted to stay.
I was young and didn’t know what to do,
So the blame is all mine and she knows it to.
What would’ve happened if she stayed around?
Is a question I’m asking; with no answer to be found.
I was her first and our passion was true,
But then I broke her heart and later she broke mine too.
Our choices were so foolish but our love was so pure,
We both made mistakes that caused pain that we have to endure.
Years have passed… then eventually we spoke to one another,
It’s like we were both searching for some sort of closure from each other.
She told me she moved on and that she’s now a mother,
But regardless of the fact, I know I still love her.
I tried to find a new love; so I guess I moved on as well,
But I always felt like I was only setting myself up just to fail.
We kept each others hearts and that didn’t seem fair,
Because we both kept looking for someone else that had some love they could spare.
Our lives are now different but somehow the same,
In all that has happened; we’d probably give each other the blame.
We all have stories about the one that got away,
And if you were to hear mine, this is what I say.
Mary is the greatest and she’s my star up above,
She’s the only one I’ll ever talk about if I ever spoke of unconditional love
