Maybe your first love is the one that stays with you forever because it’s the only person who will ever really have all of you – every little bit.

After that, you learn better.

A piece of you will forever stay left behind in the heart of the one you loved first, regardless of the time that passes or the memories that fade.

It’s a piece of you that no future sweetheart can ever also have. That piece carries innocence, the belief that love really can last forever.

It bears friendship and trust, honesty and pain, trial and error.

That one kiss you will never forget.

That single night under the stars, where you shared your deepest secrets and bared your soul.

That single night you can never reclaim.

It holds youth and everything you thought love would be.

It holds everything that growing up proved wrong.
