Life in all its shades,
Be them light or be them dark,
Leave a stain on the memory,
A deep indelible mark.
From some we learn lessons,
Only repeating them at our cost,
But others we cling onto,
The excitement never lost!
That first kiss, that first touch,
That feeling of delight.
It may have lasted only seconds,
But it warmed us through the night.
Into love we fall many times,
but those times can never surpass,
That absolutely perfect time
When we knew; this time it’ll last!
