Reflection

memories

Reminiscing about the day
I first learned to ride my bike
I remember laughing
With never-ending joyous delight
Thinking back to the time
When I drew my first portrait
Mom praised my work
And made me feel important
Then there was my very first poem
As terrible as it really was
It made me feel amazingly excited
As writing always does
Then there was the first time
I was asked by a cute boy to go steady
I really wanted to say yes
But knew in my heart that I just wasn’t ready
Then there was my first dance
Which was a complete and horrible disaster
Dancing is surely something
I’d still really like to master
My first kiss at sixteen
Couldn’t have been more romantic
On a hill under a moonlit sky
With fireworks made it perfect
Then there was the first time
I saw snow fall gloriously from the sky
I was eighteen that day
And couldn’t help but sigh
My first year of college
I was anxious and very uncertain
It didn’t help my anxiety at all
Being pestered by boys who were flirting
Then there was the Army
My first day of basic was quite amusing
Not so great for me though
Since I was the one they were abusing
Then there was the most memorable day of all
When I held and looked upon my very first child
All I could bring myself to do that day
Was sit there in complete bewilderment and smile
All of these wonderful thoughts
I completely cherish and so vividly remember
And I have no doubt in my mind
That I will continue remembering them forever
