Been single all your life or not, have had many relationships or whatsoever, there’s an irresistible flavour of first love that remain etched in our memory forever. Some worked, some didn’t and some were unrequited…
No matter how far we have moved on in our lives, or how many years have passed, even today, when you see him/her, your first love, you cannot help but smile! You may not have any feelings for that person, but you still go down the memory lane, remembering those days of the past, when you fell in love for the first time…
so here’s a poem to that first love, a feeling that we still cherish…
An Ode to my First Love
That smile on your face, the way you flipped your hair,
Among the laughter and fuzzy blues,
You turned out to be the antidote to my despair!
The first time our hands touched in the crowd,
I wavered but you didn’t even blink an eye,
You sure heard my heart beat so loud,
And the ecstasy of youth almost made me cry!
I watched you walk away, but I didn’t say a word,
The feelings inside of me began to tremble and overflow,
You kissed another girl, the confession of a love bird,
But you will never know who you were to me,
The sparkle in my eyes, the essence of my very first love!
I adored you, I made a sketch do you remember?
You smiled and pocketed it, I wonder if you ever cared to note my number,
That day, when I dressed up like a doll, were you even watching me laugh?
I wish you glanced just this once, I wish I had the guts to bring that up!
