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.




Dance With Me   10 comments




The ballroom is crowded, chandeliers burning bright

The music played softly, sweetly, this magical night

Hungry eyes meet ‘cross the crowded dance floor

Two hearts beat faster as they both wish for more


Dance with me


With a smile and a sigh she comes into his arms

He is more than enchanted by her beauteous charms

Twirling and turning, to the music they dance

Each magical moment leading on to romance



Out to the veranda they retire for air

Arm in arm, laughing, with ne’er a care

A touch, a caress, then a sweet tender kiss

A moment of forever…,  of romantic bliss

Veranda - Buena Vista - Biloxi

And the dance never ended, going onward in time

Poet and dancer in step and in rhyme

Their love never ended, interrupted a while

Til he once again took her hand with a smile


…..and asked…, Dance with me?
