First Love Visits

I dreamed of you again
The first love of my youth
I wonder what takes me there
Exploring you again
Wondering how decades later
You still come to me 
In my dreams.
I know we will never be together
Our lives so different now
But when I dream we are 
And our love so strong.
I was just wet behind the ears 
When I fell so hard
You just made me feel 
Everything around me was new
The last time I saw you a gift you gave
Still friends we are some 35 plus years later
But you told me you loved me once more
And there was the closure I had needed 
So many years before. 
Then why does it happen again
What does it mean this time when
I dreamed of you again

    Jenifer, some sad feelings in your poem... however you expressed the poem well... and the imagery of falling in love from a younger age... always~ Linda

    Lost love is that way. My lost love permeates nearly all my deep love poems, Jennifer. This is lovely. My sister's name is Jennifer.
