Time To Write: First


My first kiss, my first love, such stories
I was shy and shock the first time
And in my dream there’s a lot of fire
The truth is, I could hear the bell chime

In my tiny world, I see the light
When he broke my heart I mourn
There is a lot of fire in my dream
I couldn’t lift myself, I was torn

Even though time is a great healer
I lock myself in my room
And in my dream there’s a lot of fire
Got to be strong for life to resume*
