Your Kiss Stole My Heart - Poem by Maria Segura
Long time ago we came to be,
Me a girl with no care, and you with jean jacket & no sleeves,
Me roller skating, and you? You just appeared.
What was it that you said?
Oh yeah, “from where may I be? ”
I told you “ from far away” It didn’t matter to me.
You were very thin, wearing Bell Bottom Jeans,
You followed me around, and I wondered ….what?
What does this guy want from me?
I was eighteen, and you. You were nineteen,
Oh! So many years, so many years,
Like water down the stream.
I saw you the very next week, and you had a bunch of questions,
I thought he is interested in my sister,
but it was about me, why you wanted information.
RW2X my sister skated toward me and I said “what? ”
I wondered what was going on,
I guess a “code” Yeah, maybe that is that!
You sat next to me I could hear you breathe,
When was it, in August?
Yeah, I think it was the third week.
It was my sister’s birthday,
We left that week a little bit earlier,
For we wanted to go and celebrate it.
We went to wait for her outside,
We stood in the parking lot,
Right behind the mustang, right behind that purple car.
I remember all those things,
for they are treasures for me,
I'll always remember, all these things are precious to me.
You looked into my eyes, for you stood in front of me,
And with a most tender voice you asked,
“May I give you a kiss? ”
I looked into your eyes right back,
And I responded without thinking,
“ What the heck, ...... why not! ”
The sweetest lips..mmmm, touched mine,
And ever since then,
In your hands. you hold my heart!
What was it, two weeks, three,
When we were torn apart,
We went separate ways, me not wanting to look back.
But even though our bodies were separated,
I believe our souls and thoughts,
Would always betray us.
We searched for one another,
Each one in a different way,
For the love we have for each other, could not dissipate.
Now I see you, and I long for you, and I know, you long for me.
My heart beat becomes faster,
When I catch a glimpse or two, of you.
Sometimes I don’t turn my head,
And maybe it's because I am scared,
That I'll grab you by the hand and take you far away.
So for now my love,
And for the rest of my life,
I will always love you, I will love you all the time.
