We embraced first time
I held you very tight
It was not the fear of losing you
To owe you forever
Or to lose you ever
Was never in my mind
Feelings were as chaste and clear
Just like the prayers
Of an innocent child

There was no pretence
No encumber of expectations
My heartbeats were very high
I was just very nervous
My eyes were very shy
To meet your eyes
I broke in your arms
So that my shyness
Can find place to hide

Took me long to deem
Now the moment has arrived
You are beside
Upheld my face
Tenderly in your palms
Your eyes read the emotions
I could no longer hide
Numb and coy
Quivered deep inside
I again held you very tight
We embraced first time....

amazing poem :)
though there was a difference in complexity in different stanzas, second one was simpler than the other two, so it created a little of an imbalance. but on the whole, awesome :)

First time, always had that special corner in the memoir of our hearts...

Once again...a beautiful piece.
