I once hurt someone who to me was very dear,
so young at the time, overcome with so much fear.
So many years have passed since I broke this brother’s heart,
I only hope he has forgiven me, while making a fresh start.
He was the one and only ~ my first true love,
the feelings that we shared, I now only dream of.
I often wonder how I could have done such a thing,
to a brother who undoubtedly made my heart sing.
I could blame it on m y age, so young at the time,
I just can’t make sense of it, this passionate crime.
However, what goes around does come back around,
for the love this brother gave, I have not again found.
But time does heal and I must forgive me,
and until I do this, I will never be free.
Free to explore and give love again,
knowing another’s heart, I can capture and win.
