First Love

Heartbreak of first love..

1962 seems like forever ago. 

1963 and 1964 flew by in a rush.

So much love and so much need,

left a heart so barren and crushed.

My life was filled with you,

A mind full of never ending bliss.

If only I had known then,

you had already given me our last kiss.

Never again to hold you close,

never again to whisper in your ear.

Those moments were taken and given to another.

Followed by so many desperate years.

Never forgetting those precious moments,

so memorable and so few.

Yet through the agony and through the loss,

there was always thoughts of you.

Haunting me were thoughts of you,

rejoicing in the pain you gave.

Celebrating the end of us,

our memories you didn't save.

A crumbled mass, just damaged goods,

broken and left behind.

It didn't matter, you had new love

I never even crossed your mind.

Those moments we stole in our youth,

eyes locking in a lovers glance.

I once thought a perfect love,

but we never really stood a chance.

You were an angel and me white trash,

how foolish my thoughts were then.

To think that I could hold onto you,

no bigger fool has ever been.

I've lived my life by choices made,

compared to things I couldn't see.

No matter how hard I always tried,

I knew you would never choose me.

What happened between us those few short months,

could never be explained.

I gave up trying to understand,

it caused me too much pain.

You met and loved another boy,

happier he could make you.

His arms and kisses meant much more,

and probably his whispers too.

So long ago in a stolen glance,

those eyes that met are gone.

Never again will that moment come,

the rooms are dark, the blinds are drawn.

For only once does your first love come,

you close your eyes and pray.

Then all is lost by choices made,

when one heart chooses not to stay.
