That First Love Never Forgotten: A Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


\in those blooming youthful starts

when even winters felt like a spring

love was budding in impatient hearts

just wondering, whom Amor may. bring.

And then that lover came invading our dream

with face and all the rest so hot that it burned

irresistible with yet unknown magic of gleam

which called for prayer for that love returned.

With a joy so intense that it was hurting

we finally found the courage to say it all

first love words that came out as blurting

with crossed fingers and a hope so small.

There are hearts with no need to roam around

to try that second one and how many more

so some of us stayed with whom we found

each anniversary being first date encore.

Years are passing and we get older

not craving for much, nothing to miss

summers get shorter, winters get colder

but spring brings memories of that first kiss.
