First Love

First Love

We will always remember our first love,
At the time they were the only thing we could think of,
On our mind from the morning until the night,
The thing you would turn to when nothing went right,
My first love was pickled onion crisps,
Which took all attention off the my mothers cooked chips,
It was heaven in my mouth from the beautiful flavour,
Every moment from every crisp I had to savour,
The crumbs off my fingers would get licked away,
And I slurped the empty packed without delay,
They had to come with me where ever I went,
Because I got motivation from their delightful scent,
They knew that I wanted them and they also wanted me,
My favourite snack I thought they will always be,
But my love for them did finally end,
They were no longer my lover but just a friend,
I found something that satisfied me even more,
So the pickled onion stayed in the kitchen drawer,
What stole my heart was a chocolate cake,
A high calorie feast that my mother would bake,
But my first love I know I will never forget,
And maybe choosing the cake one day I’ll regret,
To me they will always be a delicious potato snack,
And they will still be in the drawer if I ever wanted them back.

  3. I’m afraid I don’t like the pickled onion flavour…. it has to be the flaming hot flavour with a large glass of cold milk to follow!!
    Mmmmm put’s thinking cap on for poems about pickled onions 😀

  12. First Love

    I held you tight
    and clung to you,
    my love for you untold.
    I stared into you deep brown eyes,
    my heart was yours to hold.

    So soft to touch,
    I kept you close,
    I kissed your furry ears.
    My love, my friend, my confidante,
    my darling teddy bear.

    You shared my secrets,
    calmed my fears,
    as you watched over me.
    You’ve watched me grow over the years,
    a birthday gift at three.

    You stood by me,
    in hours of need,
    and protected me at night.
    When I was ill, you’d comfort me,
    and soothe me ‘til the light.

    I cried for you,
    and made a fuss,
    my teddy bear most dear,
    hanging wet upon the line,
    one peg upon each ear.

    We’ve had our scrapes,
    both you and me,
    but survived them none the less;
    the time the dog played tug o’ war…
    but I sewed back your head.

    Now I’m grown,
    no more a child,
    It’s you that I adore.
    Although you’re bald, you’re my first love,
    my one eyed teddy bear.
