The First Time

I remember the first time
Your tentative touch as we lay side by side
The cautious exploration
A moment of shyness
Standing beside you, viewing your body
Alone with you like that-
All for the first time-
That first gasp from my touch,
And the smell of your skin
As your body pressed against me,
The rush your gentle touch gave me
As you stroked your hands across my skin
Holding me tight against you,
Feeling you within me, loving
