Theme: Love

First Love

Love came to me one day
And knocked on my door
I was only 'thirteen' then
Had not known it before

Who are you I asked amazed
And lent a patient ear
I am love the world longs for
You have nothing to fear

It whispered in my ear a name
That left me in turmoil,
I pondered over the name again
There was much to smile.

It was a name that I had known
I knew from where she rode,
Forth to school then back again
To her father's abode.

Sitting by the fireplace
I gazed into the flame
Saw her pretty face appear
Then vanish once again

The chiseled chin, the funneled nose
Topped with misty eyes
Deeper into the flame I looked
The more she mesmerized.

Now the restless nights I spent
Were different than before
On paper I would write and match
Love, Like, Hate, Adore!

In different ways I spelt my name
And hers sometimes too
But love for us never matched
Try as much I do

Is it destined to be so?
Should I take the cue?
That fate could take her elsewhere
Far away from you

Undeterred, I swore my love
In ways the best I could
As girl to woman she transformed
I knew she understood

Oh she was a stunning lass
Her contours did reveal
Would often pedal around her house
A glance of her to steal

I thought she did betray some signs
Of what she had in mind
A sideways glance, a hesitant smile
Oh further it did me bind

But love and fate being strangers
Each had its own way
While love stays with me for life
Fate walked away
