The First Love
By: Joy Horakova
About the Book
I wish I had hugged you one minute longer
We’ll look back and smile
We’ll look back and reflect
You tried everything to please me
You were the best first love I could have had
It’s too deep, too meaningful to just be unfinished business
It’s a thousand different things in a thousand different moments
That’s why I’m calling it “unfinished sentiments”
The experiences we have with our first love are ones that never leave our souls. All the excitement and wonder, the heartache and pain, and the hope of someday—all of these feelings are a part of us and shape who we become. Read Joy Horakova’s personal works of her own journey of knowing a first love.
