When my sight set itís way
Upon the loveliness of your face
In our teens
Your smile was divine
Your beautiful almond eyes
I made mine
Your tender lips taught me
The art of a lovely kiss
Though we were in our teens
That day you made my heart
Skip a beat
Everyday I laid my eyes
Upon the sweetness of a vision
That was you
Like That of a rising sun .

I felt my heart racing
out of control
Butterflies and silvery snakes
Dwell within my stomach
At the mere sight of you
Until that last day
I kissed you
When sad goodbyes
were said..

Four decades ago, I last saw a tear
Fall from her eyes
Pilfered you away from me
Eternally, faith parted us
A Thousand Miles Away
I will never forget
That last day, I too
Shed a tear
Away from your sight
For in those days
A man
Was not supposed to cry
We stayed in communication
Just a few years
Until another stole your heart
Away from me.

Your raised your own family
At a tender age
I went to war
Several years down the line
I was blest by the lord
Then I too traveled down
That same road .

Dreams of you, still torment
My heart and soul
My most valued treasured
Of a love we shared
At such a tender age
I often wondered
If you still think of me
Or in your dreams
I could ever be?

This morning
I woke with a smile
I saw you in my dreams
As we were then
Once again
You made the sun rise
Within my heart
And shadows disappear
You still dwell
In the loving chambers
Of my happiness
No one could ever steal
My dreams of you
Away from me.

Oh William this is so beautiful!
Reminds me of one of my poems I wrote of my first love
Still love him to this day and always will, we both feel that same way.
Although we are on in years now...we still just a few years ago were
able to speak about our wonderful appreciation for one another and the love we will always possess.
The "FIRST LOVE" they say...sometimes I wonder if that kind of love for people is the only true love...hmmm I have wondered.
Therefore, I never discount the love of the young ones...we all knew how we felt and most still never forget henceforth the young one's nowadays perhaps may feel that very same way.
A most heavenly love...a love that causes you to feel that you are in the same family ...perhaps it turns spiritual that is a possibility!

All the best and many blessings to you always,
Hugs and ((( SEMPER FI )))~Gwendolyn

Dreams are precious, priceless, like those who inspire them. This is incredibly beautiful William.

The power of a first love should be this. It isn't always a great memory. This is bittersweet but still lives because the memory brings a smile. Nicely done!
Reviewed by Georg Mateos 4/16/2007
Oh the first lies just hope, no sorrows just smiles,
no suspicions just unlimited faith, puppy love, innocent, worth to be put in a gold lock where reality can't touch.
Thanks for the memories.
