Your smile


You may be gone, but I still keep your photograph,

Our first date when you asked how far we should go.

Undecided, I left the decision up to you.

Remembering my naiveté still brings a blush to my cheek.

Sixteen years later, I still see your smile in her eyes.

Memories come flooding back of that first night.

In the throes of Innocence-flare,I cried out your name.

Love never tasted quite so sweet all these years.

Excitement regardless, lingers in this still – my first love.
