Title: First Love.



She was eight years old, I was near nine

A smile always shone from her eyes

She tucked her dress in her knickers and skipped really fine

While I looked at her beautiful thighs.

When she had an apple she gave me the core

Even when there were other kids there

I split my sweets with her, in fact gave her more

And I would had give all of my share.



We'd spin round the lamp-post 'til we fell on the floor

Too dizzy to stand on our feet

We'd laugh ourselves silly then spin round some more

And fall down again in the street.

She'd chew gum for hours then she'd give it to me

I'd chew it as well for a while

The peppermint flavour, a faint memory

Now it tasted of her beautiful smile.



We learned how to ride on a broken down bike

With a saddle too high for our bums.

Picked blackberries in the brambles on abandoned bomb-sites

And took them back home to our mums.

We played doctors and nurse, mothers and dads

In the evenings we played hide & seek.

We'd hide out together and gently hold hands

And try very hard not to speak.
