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.
