The First Time

Standing with a smile

Bigger than my head

In a star struck gaze

I was the teenager

Too shy to speak

Yet somehow

With the help

Of my best friend

I was able to ask

“Can I have your autograph?”

And for the rest

Of that wonderful day

I was an exuberant girl

Still smiling ear to ear

And forever a fan
