Missed Young Love


Never Had But Always Wished For

The first crush

Puppy love

Two children barely old enough to understand

Their own bodies yet alone the feelings they have

Making googly eyes at each other

Her eyes fluttering and her face blushing

Him awkward and shy

Whispering secrets so no one else can hear

So happy sitting side by side

Lost in the big world

Feeling so attached

Holding hands

Then a quick kiss

Two of hearts

Wild dreams and fantasies

Connected together forever

Gypsy Rose Lee The love that we see and feel keeps changing as we change. No matter what happens next in our life we some how can still remember the way we once felt. When I was little things really didn't go my way. I had feelings for different girls but the girls I liked were not interested. So I guess that is why you call them crushes. I got crushed more than once. The thoughts I felt were more what I wanted it to be like more than it actually was. Now that I am older I can make up a different ending where I don't end up sad but moved and tingling all over. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Life is a journey and each place and time is only one stop along the way. Have a beautiful night.

manatita 44 Look how far we have come. From the first beginning of a friendship to marriage and a family. All the excitement and joy over the years. A love that started so simple and developed in many ways over time. Bill Holland Some memories are so terrific and are still larger than life. Then there are so many embarrassing times that we want to forget but we can't. Thank you both for traveling back in time and sharing the beautiful memories with the sad ones too. It may be late but so much to do in such a short time.

Boy oh boy, those days are gone. :) There was a sweet innocence about that time, wasn't there? Sweet melancholy for sure.
