You were my first.
I saw fireworks when we kissed.
Brilliant red and blue skyrocketing behind closed eyes.
I remember our first hours.
Rain, wind and thunder stormed outside as passion and curiosity blossomed in Porsche leather.
I ran scared after that evening.
But you gently persisted.
And then I fought no more.
I remember your words on that fourth of July –
“We are no longer just friends, now we are lovers”
You were my confidant.
Thank you for teaching me that trust and honor did exist.
For giving me peaceful sleep while listening to your heart beat.
Until the very last day of our acquaintance your kiss brought weakness to my knees.
Thank you for loving me.
For whispering words of tenderness in my ears
and giving me a part of your heart …
I know such beauty still exists somewhere.
I will persist …
