A delicate, vulnerable moment

An exciting, wonderful moment

As a new dimension to life is revealed,

The arms stretch wider

The legs reach farther

Footsteps become a little stronger

Rough ways a little smoother

Crooked ways a little straighter;

The countenance becomes brighter

Easier to smile

Easier to freely laugh.

One heart honestly answers another

Like reflections in a clear pond,

Sincerity opens within as flower petals

Slowly, steadily in the new day’s light.

The kiss of Truth comes upon a human life,

A long kiss of lasting friendship

With a fresh blush of beauty;

Completely naked transparency before God

Bold and fearless, shameless openness to our Creator,

First kiss always for our First Love.
