Rondeau redoublé - Her First Lover

A softness came into her eyes
when she would speak of her first lover.
That first love never really dies,
done and gone, completely over.

She misted up, slow to recover
then made up some convenient lies.
I'd no heart to be reprover.
A softness came into her eyes.

No need that she apologize.
Once I was young too, and a rover
She touched me with her quiet sighs,
when she would speak of her first lover.

Oh, I'd not be a dream's remover
nor adopt a hurt disguise.
And yet I felt the old ghosts hover -
that first love never really dies

Only first love occupies
that heart-space of 'delight and suffer.'
It's not a thing to vaporize
done and gone, completely over.

I was her lover, but was never
her first choice, I realize.
Each day I'd once again discover
she'd never end those soft goodbyes -
that first love never really dies.
