Can_I_Have_This_Dance__by_CuoraColeonyx[1]

Tonight I am far away.

I am in another time and space, holding a beautiful young girl in my arms and dancing to

the melody of a soft, slow waltz.  She is smiling sweetly.  No words are spoken.  None need

be as our hearts are so entwined that each knows instinctively what the other is thinking.

There are at least a hundred other people at the dance but we neither see nor hear them as

we are lost in an intimately private world of our own.

 Veranda - Buena Vista - Biloxi

The music in the Buena Vista ballroom died and the band packed up and was leaving.  We danced out onto the veranda to the music that kept playing in our hearts that night.  Til then, neither had voiced the words “I love you”, but we’d heard them a thousand times in each other’s eyes.

The night is crystal clear

And the slivered moon is bright.

Stars wink at me

From their place in the heavens tonight.

I see your reflection

In their eyes

Sweet Dreams

Sleep doesn’t come as I close my eyes

I still see the moonlit starry skies

And hear the faint melody of the band inside

As we dance on the beautiful balcony outside

Another slow waltz, as we glide ‘cross the floor

And quietly slip away through the veranda’s back door

Was not in our mind to spend the night at a dance

When under the moonlight we dreamed of romance.

~~~ December’s Angel ~~~   Leave a comment

Some of you may recognize this.  It’s an annual tradition of mine.  It’s to honor the memory

of a time precious to me, and a brief part of my life shared with a beautiful young woman

who chose to share her love with me.

*********************

At the beginning of December

Conversations turned to snow

It was always in her questions

Wherever we would go

I promised I would take her

So that finally she would know

But angels came to take her home

And she never saw the snow.

***************

As the chill of winter settles on the land and brings gray clouds the horizon, memories of another December come to mind and I feel a presence, and I hear a soft whisper, “Don’t fret dearest.  I’ve been with you all this time, every day of every year…, and, yes darlin’, even in the snow”.  A quick caress and she is gone again. Christmas…., a time we were, sadly, never to be able to share with each other.

There’s a stillness in the evening air

It’s beautiful, but cold out there

Not yet, but very soon

Will come the face of a bright full moon

Cannot resist the lure of its light

And wander into the chill of the night

Frozen snow crunches under my feet

And as I walk I soon will greet

My moonshadow.

Memories on a Quiet Evening   1 comment

There’s naught that I might write

My mind is elswhere tonight,

Walking a white sand beach

Savoring a memory I reach

Breathing the sweet salt air

Enjoying the times I was there

That wonderful time is gone

But in my heart will linger on

That moment now has passed away

*

Tomorrow I’ll face a brand new day.

Be a happy dream.

**********

Along a quiet, cloudless shore

Through the sleepy mist of night

In shadows left by starlight

The search begins once more.

……..

Witnessed by a silvery moon,

Through the chambers of my mind

The journey of a thousand nights

Wandering…, as though blind.

…….

Hoping for a memory,

A faint and haunting trace

A fleeting shadow’s glance, to see

That sweet familiar face.

…….

Searching in a hapless way

Forgetting pathways taken

The quest disrupted…, breaking day,

Still lost…, I awaken.
