And as we lay there,
Hearts beating in tune with each other,
My head resting upon your chest,
Your hand, gently rubbing my back.
I couldn’t help but fall even harder for you,
This moment that we were sharing,
This peaceful silence,
It felt like home.
And as you moved my face closer to yours,
No words were needed,
We both knew what was about to transpire.
And as our lips met for the first time,
I could have sworn, my whole world came to a standstill,
My mind went quiet,
And all that mattered, all that was real,
Was just us, lost in that first kiss.
