I remember the first time I found you; it was in a place where I never thought we’d meet. The memory of that day still lingers in my mind, so vivid and clear that it’s as if time has never passed.
But today, I find myself back in that same place, alone. The sound of the wind rustling through the trees is the only thing that breaks the deafening silence around me. It’s as if the world is mourning with me, grieving for what once was and what could have been.
As I stand there, lost in thought, I hear a familiar voice in the distance. My heart skips a beat, hoping it’s you, but reality sets in when I see you walking towards me hand in hand with another man. My eyes linger on your beautiful face, the one that has haunted me for so long.
You look so happy, and it pains me to know that it’s not with me. I see in your eyes the same spark that used to be there when we were together, the same one that I thought I’d never see again. But now, it’s directed at him, the new love of your life.
I can’t help but wonder what could have been, what would have happened if things had gone differently. Would we be the ones walking hand in hand, laughing and joking like we used to? Would we be the ones sharing each other’s joys and sorrows, building a life together?
But the truth is, we’ll never know. The universe had different plans for us, and we can only accept and live with what we have now.
As you pass by me, you look at me with those same beautiful eyes that I fell in love with. And for a moment, it’s as if time stops, and we’re back to that day when we first met. But just as quickly as it came, the moment fades away, and you walk away with him, leaving me to pick up the pieces of my shattered heart.
I stand there, rooted to the spot, my heart heavy with the weight of what could have been. But as I turn to leave, I know that I must move on, that I must let go of the past and embrace what the future has in store for me.
Maybe, someday, I’ll find someone new, someone who will fill the void that you left in my heart. But until then, I’ll always remember you, the first love of my life, the one that got away.
