First Love by ginger1108 First Love by ginger1108
I used to be the one
Who would long to hear your voice
A child who sought to win his Father's heart
But as I carried on
Life got a hold on me
Now here I am, a child so far from home

Tell me when did I lose my first love?
Where did the fire and passion go?
Burn in me Your holy fire
Give me back my lost desire
And restore in me the love I felt for You

Can I remember how it felt
When they looked into my face
And they saw the love of Jesus in my eyes
When I look back on my life
And question where I've been
Can I really say I've done my best for you?

Oh, where did I go?
(I've lost my way, I've lost my love, I'm all alone)
Oh, I'm lost and I'm alone
Oh, help me please Lord, lead me home

Father take me back
And let me start again
Lord, I've failed and I've fallen in my pride
But lead me back to you
Where my life began
Revive in me the yearning that has died.

- Avalon: First Love

Thank you Ginger, for such a good poem, with such important words!
Now, this is my way, way finding the first my love and words of your poem really touched me. Thanks Ginger.
And also your picture is in the subject.
I posted your poem on the my page, in Russian site, in a note and I expect that this may also be encouragement for someone.

Forgive me for my terrible English, I'm not a native speaker.

Awesome photograph; simple in construct and composition, but I wouldn't use that "de way" arrow to the side. It kinda of detracts from the image itself. Still, very nice work.
(I *especially* love the bight color use.)

That signpost says it all!

Jesus said, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life!" :nod:
He didn't say a way...

This is awesome. I think I'd work on the signage to the side; it's kind of illfitting here, but the meaning is GREAT and understood.

yah the sign is awkward..
i liked the idea of having a heart as an arrow with the one way sign pointing towards the cross, but it doesn't quite fit well here.. hmm..
