Unforgettability of the first love, etched in the heart for ever.

Oh yes, once we were in love,
At least, so did I think.
In the day I could not work,
Nor, in night, had a wink.

What I saw was what you saw,
I walked in step with you.
I had only you in dreams;
For me the world was you.

I just can’t forget those days,
Forever gone are they.
By the lure of the city,
You were taken away.

You went never to come back,
Never to drop a line.
I was no more in your thoughts,
Your heart, no longer mine.

I am happily married,
My husband loves me, true;
Yet in the world of my dreams,
Lurking somewhere are you.

Can I forget my First Love,
Even though unfaithful?
It was only your love that
Made me so beautiful!
