You were my first love,
you held me like no other,
blanketed me with sky,
soothed me to sleep
in violet moonlight,
and told me we were spinning
through the stars

You were my first love
you kissed me with
crystal water and
whispered your faithfulness
over flooded rocks,
even the trees stood, rooted
and drank your beauty

You were my first love
you called me through your birds,
your sun knew how to
find my bones
when I had forgotten
I was made of flesh

You were my first love
and I breathed you in,
sharp air that fuelled my joy
and fed my creativity

You were my first love
wild oceans licking blue sky,
green grass the backdrop
for flowers that pulsed
their own colours

You were my first love
I had forgotten
striving, driving
out of my heart
alone in my head

I am coming back to claim you
for you never left
