Brand New

Not sure what to do.
She is brand new,
Facing something she has never been through.

First love,
And she is facing an unsolved riddle.
She would be happy to meet him,
Not necessarily on her terms,
But somewhere in the middle.

She is not too young to realize that love is built on
trust and compromise.
She always dreamed of flowers, a restaurant, a movie, and a guitar.
Did she go too far?

None of brand new's dreams for her own love have been authenticated.
But her desire for this first love has never faded.
She has never known love that has not been
family related.
Love that has only been contemplated and debated,
is sometimes complicated.

Deep in thought,
Her brow wrinkled in wrought,
Uncharted territory, not in her memory, true.
Now she doesn't have a clue,
And she is looking at you,
Hoping, like always, you will guide her through.

But, it is both exciting and exasperating,
When you are brand new,
Looking for someone brand new too.
Wanting someone special to love you.
What's brand new to do?
Don't laugh, you were once brand new too.
