That First Kiss

Published by at 7:35 pm under Forever Love Poems

only yesterday it seems
we sat in this same circle
pimply face kids
eager to explore
every facet of love
that first kiss
still something to lose sleep over

parents ourselves now
we gaze back and forth
each in turn wondering
how the years escaped us
a little heavier on the outside
faces long clear of acne
showing the first lines of aging
and hidden between them
the scars of failed romance
some old
others not long in healing

over a glass of something
now all too easily taken for granted
we laugh
we dance
and flirt
cautiously optimistic
that first kiss
will still keep us awake
