ROMANTIC MUSINGS: First Love, Last Love


“Maybe I’m too late to be your first. But right now I’m preparing myself to be your last.” ~Mr. Sid

We concern ourselves with the place we hold in the lives of the people we love. Men often seek to be a woman’s first love. Women may reflect on the memory of their first kiss.

There’s an innocence to the preambles of love. Our first steps along a journey that will define our lives. Though we cannot see beyond the scope of the now, we often envision the details of the future that we hope to share with the one we love.

It may seem a though we are living for tomorrow, but in doing so, we are only living in the tomorrow while failing to live in the now. Count not the seconds that approach, and count not the seconds that have passed. Instead, fill each second of your life with love!

I promise you, there will be no regrets.

When you hold each other as though you’re saying goodbye, you never want to let go. When you kiss each other as if it was the first time, and as if it was the last, you’ll savor the taste of affection…the exchanging of souls.

Make the most of the minutes before they have passed, because time is the one thing you think you have enough of, but will never get back.

Memories are for the winters of our lives.

But to have them, we must make them.

Anything can change in the blink of an eye. A voice can become an echo that vanishes like the wisp of smoke, but a whisper of love in the moment will echo through eternity.

When you find yourself dreaming while you’re awake, you’ll discover that you’re in love. When you’re in love, you place the fancy of your heart first, and they in-turn do the same for you. Together, you guide each other into tomorrow, side-by-side, hand-in-hand, heart-to-heart, and though you may not have been each other’s first kiss, or first love…what matters most is that you’re first in each other’s hearts now.

Don’t take each other for granted.

Love each other like you’re going to lose each other and you’ll find yourself holding on for dear life.

Life is fragile.

Life is now.

Life is love.

So, when you fall in love delve into it like it’s the last thing you’ll ever do, for there is no greater feeling than being in love and knowing that someone else is in love with you too!




Does it matter then that you weren’t each other’s first?
