I chanced upon a memory
that seems like yesterday
but it was really long ago
and oh, so far away.
It was a chilled November night
and in my thirteenth year
the stars were gathered in my eyes
for the one I loved was there.
We sat there talking quietly
I, full of nervous doubt
just trying to sound normal
thinking that I might pass out.
He was quite a few years older
a friend that had been true
I knew that he had won my heart
and I hoped he felt it, too.
My heart was beating way too loud
through my words I stumbled
and when he looked deep in my eyes
oh, how my stomach tumbled!
I thought that I would die right there
he made my dreams come true
he said the words I longed to hear
he had felt the same way, too!
He swept me quickly in his arms
and claimed that first sweet kiss
I never even had the chance
to worry I would miss!
There isn't much that I can say
it flipped my head around
and all the world was so devine
as I floated off the ground.
The time had come to say good night
and he kissed me once more
I said good night and turned around
and crashed into a door!

ground to swallow me up! RG
