Reaching Back

Now I reach back into the past to my first love but not my last. I hear his voice still in my brain. So many fragments of the past remain. I see the one I loved so true on the highway in my rearview. I'm on vacation, a getaway, from the sorrows of today. We laughed and cried so much back then. We shared smiles. We kissed and lingered for a while. He kissed my hand and looked into my eyes. I felt his heartbeat. He heard my sighs. We were so young then and free. He was himself and I was me. By: Carole O'Terry Duet Copyright: 2017 "All Rights Reserved"
