The First

The first

The first time I experienced 

A touch that makes me sink

Eyes that make me dream

I can’t even think,

A smile that beams

To steal those kisses

That cause my knees to be weak


The first time I felt this

Racing in my body and its not from the drugs

Feeling wanted by a human

Nervous about what to say when I meet your folks

Comfortable with another to speak our minds

Honored to get to be with someone


The first time I felt 

Happy to be called “mine” by someone who means it

Close to another more than physcially 

Peaceful, knowing I have a person in my life who will stand by me

Love that will be an everlasting fire within our hearts.
