First Time

Written by: Bryanna Williams

In looking back I realize
The first time is a measure
I'll use it to weigh my memories
That tomorrow I will treasure.

First kiss, first date, first phone call
First one to hold my hand
First time to feel the kind of love
I hardly understand.

Yet after careful viewing
If it won't hold up to light
I'll have another “first time"
To try to get it right.
