Lost and unfound

She said to me
I would find someone 
to love, then she
left, leaving me alone. 
She said I should 
save my first kiss
for one who would 
give me love’s bliss. 
Nine years ago today 
she said those words, 
then she went away.
I never really heard. 
Since then I’ve waited 
for my first kiss,
and now I’m dismayed: 
it’s her I miss.
