For the first time

For the first time I kissed you I knew the sun would shine even in the rain, for the first time I held your hand I knew I was protected from anymore pain. For the first time I saw you I knew I loved you all of my days, for the first time I felt God and I thank him for your ways. For the first time I know the second will be the same. by Jennifer Daetwiler
