I was once sweet seven-teen

 

I was once sweet seven-teen

She walked by

She made my eyes open to the world

She was the world

 

How bitter it was

That I had to learn

That the world was independent of me

I was such a tiny speck of nothing

 

Many decades ever since

How sweet it is

That from time to time

She has walked through my heart

 

Such a magnificent power

A man is born by first love
