The First Time … Kissed

I woke from a dream this morning,

the sunlight clearly indicating my haste,

begin another day,

a silent realization, a song.

 

Somehow Roberta Flack gave me words,

‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face,’

seemed to let my dream invite my day.

I wondered how I could know the lyrics

 

I played it again in a soft shower

a sweet reminder, a place to cry,

letting my tears mix with the heat

trying to wake beyond her dream.

 

Such soulful melody, watching now,

a sunrise that would remind me again,

the first time,

when I did once kiss her with passion.

 

I found other medleys, trying to seek some

reckoning, and yet, realized, there is only one.
