First Love Lessons

A casualty in the hospital of heartbreak
The right of passage through youth
To graduate from this life lesson
The abundance of pain in this moment
Warning off too easily opening a heart
Too eager for butterflies and smiles
With this unintended consequence
But on the other end of balance
May you wish to try it again
Venture the gauntlet of relation
To find the love of a mate
Make a life together one day
When the child has long turned adult
And youth is only a grateful teaching
How to navigate the dips of the heart
