Liked the picture - didn't like the sound of the youtube video, found the recording I like - don't like the picture...why cannot we have everything? I went for the sound, so just close your eyes and listen:
This song gets me every time. "But that was so long ago, that I can scarcely feel the way I felt before" - a real "punch in the gut" line. Below is my response to a prompt from IGWRT. The details of the challenge are here: http://withrealtoads.blogspot.ca/
~ The First Time I Fell in Love ~
The first time I fell in love,
our school was out for summer,
and peonies bloomed.
The first time you touched my hand,
I felt my world turn upside down
and scatter stars before me.
But that was so long ago,
that I can scarcely feel the way I felt before.
And if I were young again,
I would not attempt to change
the course my love did take.
The last time you broke my heart,
I tried to pick its burning shards
and thought I’d never come alive,
I did not know that from afar
my true love sailed to be with me.To mend my heart.
Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur
