Circle of Firsts

I wrote this poem several weeks ago. I was trying to write one about endings at the time, but this was what came instead. :)

First breath. First steps.
First time to ride a bike.
First school. First friend.
First sleepover – up all night.
First essay. First F.
First time to care about GPA.
First date. First break.
First graduation day.
First college. First class.
First day – everything is new.
First love. First kiss.
First – and last, you pray – I do.
First apartment. First fight.
First anniversary to celebrate.
First child. First birth.
First scream you anticipate.
First breath. First steps.
First time to ride a bike….
