First love, sweetest, purest, desire
the deep yearning for just one glance.
Even without a word exchanged
one glance from him and day will shine!
The rush of hot blood through vein
whenever he passes by.
Whenever his voice reaches the ears,
whenever his thoughts crossed mind!
The silent, meek surrender
as if to someone celestial!
Upon whose mercy world existed
whose smile was sun’s shine.
First love is mostly the dearest one
bringing out the very best.
Filling up the entire being
with the divine touch of heaven.
It can’t be captured with words,
so beautiful is this painting!
So exquisite is its beauty
no words, colours can grasp it!
It fills up two hearts with music
two souls with adoration.
Two lives become living bliss
every second is spent in heaven.
