First Four Days

Yours is the first face that I saw
My one eye open,
The light shined through
Learning my first lesson
That your first is your last
Nothing will shine
Quite as bright
Don’t try to understand
It’s not that easy…

For two split seconds,
The day was dark and grey
Brand new…
Students sprawled sleeping.
Pour my tears
Back into my cloud
Because
My second lessons learned
Keeps me coming back for more
Just stitch my heart
Back into my chest
If only Elm. Were easy…

Three days into July
Last name expired,
Diamond settled on my
Third finger.
Daddy gave me away
You’ll stand by me?
Ill stand by you,
I do…

Four minutes left,
First death
Like the wind
My years flew
Eliminated future
Never a first again,
For
I’ve witnessed
The First Four days
Of
My
Life…
