First Love

Returning home again after many years away
I find our secret path along the Fundy Bay
That happy place where long ago we played
Where all our dreams and promises were made

Once again I lie down where daises grow
In fields above the banks where salt winds blow
Golden memories rush through my hungry soul
Returning pieces of my heart lost long ago

I close my eyes recalling all the things we did
Just the way they were when we were kids
And I know without a doubt that you are here
As your love for me falls from my eyes in tears

We lie like angels looking up at clouds of cream
As we watch them take the shape of all our dreams
We laugh so hard at all the things we do and say
To us life is just a stage a place to laugh and play

We find the trail that takes us down to meet the ocean
Where we swim in waves of jubilant emotions
Then we walk along the shore together hand-in-hand
And we write our love forever in the sand

Beautiful poetry Elaine. I was thinking about you and wondering where you have been. I thought I'd stop by and say I miss you. (This poem brought tears to my eyes...young love.) God be with you. Lovingly, Dane Ann

The heavy imagery given to me in the writing was epic. The sudden rush of emotions reminded me of my first love, it wasn't as romantic or moving, yet a nice memory to relive. Beautiful. Love, Sami.

Bliss is wonderful, ain't it. Time can change so much. Though I don't agree with some changes, no one can take my memories from me. A nice memory here, Elaine. "Once again, I lie down, where daises grow, / In fields above the banks where salt winds blow". How our memories and past define us.
