First Love

i came back here tonight
to remember you, my first love
the trees are still the same,
the flowers smell like they did when we were younger
i wonder if you still think of me
i wish i know what you, ve done with your life
where you are
if you still care
have you had a hard time like me
fallen in love with the wrong person time after time?
or are you very happy with someone special?
would i still stand a chance
if we met again today?
the memories keep flooding back
the stolen kisses, the happy days
the joys of been in love
but then i turn away and leave
wishes are for little girls
but oh how hard it is to forget

Ahh such a beautiful poem, one we all can relate to. I often wonder as you do where they are now and what they are doing. very nice.
A very soft and nostalgic plaintive write. Lovely
