You Never Forget


The little things that we tend to forget, as life moves bye so very swift.
A baby’s first smile, your very first kiss,
Water running over your feet as you walk near the beach.
Your very first ride on a Merry-Go-Round as the horse you’re riding goes up and down,
The first time you see a shooting star.
Just remember it’s the little things in life that make you who you are.
It doesn’t matter how old you get; you never will forget that very first kiss.
You may not remember the day, the time, or the hour.
But you never will forget, the – ONE – You gave, your very first kiss.
