first love
naive youth
forever hope

first kiss
felt electric
but the stars
decided on a lesson
on first love

warm embrace
the memories and laughter
innocence broken
by the darkest storm

after the wreckage
the stillness set in
at first shock
denial and anger

but cleansed by rain
a breath of fresh air
soothed the soul
in between a space

life is love

love is happiness
love is health

mental and physical

first love
learn to ebb and flow
with grace change

to a new rhythm

another dance

to love forever, hope.
