I once loved,
Not long ago.
I too bore it all,
My mind , heart withal.
Once too I felt,
The butterflies and emotions
Of a young man in love.

I too once felt,
The pain of rejection
Nudging endlessly at my heart;
Shed the tears of anguish
At the loss of that first love –
Forever to be embedded
In the ebbs of my heart.

I too ate,
That sweet forbidden fruit
In the wilderness of the fields
With the passion and naivety
Of two young lovers.

I too son,
Was once like you;
So do not perceive me ignorant
In the matters of love.
Come to me
And let me help you
Through this confusion
That is young love.
