Listen to “First Time” while you read-

Paintingof lovers

I look thru ageless eyes
I see ageless memories
A spot on the road where
I gave her our first orchid
A hill where I parked
And cried while she partied with another
A field in the moonlight
Where we watched the deer
The driveway to her house
Where I kissed her last
Only to fool myself that I didn’t care

The cemetery where she lies
Only 45 years old
From a fall from a tall building
When divorce encroached

I look thru ageless eyes
I see ageless memories
