the first time
i fell in love
it was a woman
six years older
than myself
the most beautiful
bright blaze of hair
i had ever seen
and i wanted to be
like her, to be
her in every way
from her unique face
to gentle ways that
have never been matched
before or since
she took me
under her watch
bearing my tears
nodding in agreement
what she allowed

i cried when she left
and i wonder where
those letters are now...
the first time
i fell in love
it was a woman
six years older
than myself
