First Love

You were the first of all my loves
the first to wake my heart
the one to make it beat so wild
pierced now with cupids dart

You looked my way and stole my breath
you turned a school girls head
I was love struck there and then
hung on every word you said

Perhaps I was a little young
but my heart at your feet I lay
and gladly offered you my soul
to do with as you may.

How I longed for you to want me
I was just the sister of a friend
still I would sit and dream of us
…..but dreams are just pretend

Years ago I fell for you
but for me you were never right
and though my heart may flutter still
it no longer leaps on sight

You were the first of all my loves 
and so you'll always stay
but in my heart the space you hold
is now a corner out the way.
