I really just want to hold your hand
While running fingers back through your hair
Simply so I can kiss your forehead and
Show you how much I truly care.
Here we sit, we two, arm in arm
By the docks looking out to sea
The water so still and softly calm
Like this moment for you and me.
Meekly a rain lightly does fall
And we arise to head for home
As the night grows cold yet all
I feel next to you is comfy warm.
We walk a ways as I walk you to your door
As this rain makes sodden our every mile
And you look beautiful all the more
As the rain drops drip down past your smile.
At your house we lie in soft embrace
A moment ne’er felt as right as this
As I look upon your smiling face
And slowly instigate our first kiss.
What taste is this when our tongues meet?
Such a rush! Oh fantastic bliss!
Never could anything taste so sweet
Passion coursing from one small kiss.
Just like when we walked back in the rain
Asking me why my speech was dormant
It was that there were no words to explain
How I could fall in love from so small a moment.
But love it was and it was here to stay
For many more years and ups and downs
And the hurt and all the joy along the way
Every happy smile and judgemental frown.
Six years on I think and remember
One thing lingers and I write on this
My fire burns hot for you ne’er to ember
All from the power of our first kiss.
