I’ve met a guy named Edmund
He was sweet like chocolate almond
A stranger who came to our town
To build up a project there down
He stayed in a nearby apartment
With his staff and crew in the department
One early morning their group passed by
A guy in his mid-thirties waved and said hi
The warm greeting was ignored for this girl is shy
Days have gone by when finally he was introduced
The way he looked at me was like I’m seduced
He captured my heart and made me totally slave
First love sprang, to his love and warmth I craved.
You and I had moments of happiness on the beach
You proudly told the crowd I’m yours in your speech.
It made me tongue-tied as they hailed for us
But happy days ended when someone trespass
All of a sudden, she took you away from me
The scene was still so fresh in my memory
It transpired during my busy days in May.
Tragically we ended up losing each other
But sometime in one cold night of November
You begged me to stop, for us to talk for a while
Then handed me down a photo of you with a smile
You told me to check the photo paper at the back
There I was your address for me to track
Your pouty lips grinned and opened up in thirst
Requesting me that if I still care, I’d write you first
The feeling was still there, but my ego reigned
Thus, I did not write and erased you in my mind.
How sad the story was, about my first love.
Yet, if there was a chance, I would want a rewind.
