The First Time

by Regis Boff

I love to think about the first time things ever happened. I have seen I think very few. I saw the first time mankind landed on the moon. Someone must have been around the first time words were put to music too. I wasn’t available for that.

I was certainly present at my first kiss. I may have been there to see the first kiss for some girls. But men can’t really be sure.

I have witnessed the first death of loved ones. But that is sort of an odd category, I think.

I have been there for two births. And one first step.
