My first love

The first love is the sweetest

while the first cut is the deepest.

Maybe it usually doesn’t work out

because some of us need to see

all the faces of Love

Somewhere on the river

we lie and float along, from

the blissful graces the heart makes

to wistful embraces of heartbreaks

In this lifetime, we ended as friends

moving separately to grow our wings

and fly to different parts of the world.

It’s time that I accept,

that you will always be in my heart.

It’s time that I forgive

myself for not understanding.

You were the one to show me

the magic of Love.

You were the one to teach me

how to be vulnerable with someone.

You were the one

to open my heart.

All I ask

is a prayer

that I may find the same passion and spiritual companionship

as you did.

Thank you for being a part of my life.

I will always love you.
