The First Love

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


A furtive glance,

a warming grin,

our eyes do meet,

the spell begins.


The softest word,

our hearts imbued,

an innocent touch,

and love ensues.


Of wonder makes,

our searching minds,

discovery takes,

each soul sublime.


With eyes like pools,

we see right through,

into the depths,

our secrets true.


With knowledge thin,

our lives begin,

on slender rope,

where love has been.


With world gone by,

just we reside,

together now,

until time resign.


There is none like the first.

      Nice poem. Nice sentiment and so true. You never forget your first love, but if you are really lucky that first one will last for a lifetime. Although, they rarely do. Good job.

      So glad it brought all the memories back, Duchess. Thanks for reading and commenting. There is always a part of us that remains untainted, and naive; the purity of youth and emotions a treasured memory.
