First kiss

A simple gift

From someone dear

Sets my heart ablaze

Amidst the blossom moon

and the gentle breeze

Ordinary, common,

the gift it seems

that everyone can give

But not this

For it is special

Small, tender, soft

but meaningful it surely is

An affirmation

of what I am to the giver

A sense of elation

joy, pride, and most importantly love

All comes packaged in the simple gift

This gift I will treasure

To be kept in a secret place

Deep down in my heart

For it means so much so very much to me

The gift of love.

She inspired me to write in verse.
