Shall I tell you?

Shall I tell you about my first love?
The thrill to hold her warm hands in mine
Her laughing eyes her cute turned up nose
Everything about her so divine

I liked the way she lay her sweet head
On my chest on green hills grassy slope 
And raised her head when she heard my heart
Beating fast with such desire and hope

It's funny loving someone this way
As the whole world now belongs to you
The sun, the moon, the wind and the sea
You're filled with such strength you never knew

The world's your oyster with much to try
And when you're young changes come so fast
There are now others flirting with you
Not long one smile and the bait is cast

Broken hearts end in Cupid's trash cart
Did you lose or did you not succeed?
Love when young is so expendable
Affairs when when your poor heart did bleed

When you lose that one that's been your life
Rage and loneliness overwhelm you
You see them in your dreams every night
Every moment recalls your love so true


  1. A lovely write on the ups and downs of love.

  2. Losing one's life mate is so hard, Robin. When we are young and are heartbroken over lost lov, little do we know that this loss is leading us to The One meant for us........You lived a beautiful love you must miss her!

  3. So sad! And yet this memory and the one true love sustain--they would sustain me. Though someone told me earlier today that I should work on believing I am still worthy of romantic love. Ha! I can't think of a thing wrong with it! We're all worthy. And some of us, blessedly, have been in its arms.

  4. Oh, yes, love does make you feel rich: sun, moon, stars, the universe--all are yours. Wonder-full!

  5. Heartbreakingly true. When we are very young, love is a game. Then we start growing up... and we begin to understand just how important sharing that glorious feeling with another actually is. The more years that go by, the more we learn how to love, the more we long for what is no more.

  6. It's so wonderful to have found true love in this life. Even if they are no more, "You see them in your dreams every night". A beautiful feeling this is.

  7. The last verse reminds us how much love hurts. A good tretise on love Robin
    Happy you dropped by my blog

    much love...

  8. To love and be loved is one of the wonderful gifts life can give. Even when our loved ones are gone, we hold them tight in our memories. A beautiful and touching write, Robin.

  9. Loved the third stanza...beautiful!

  10. A wonderful, heartfelt story of love! Well done!

  11. As the whole world now belongs to you
    The sun, the moon, the wind and the sea
    Just beautiful The whole poem and the sadness it brings as the queen said Grieve is the price we pay for love
