The Dance

We all dream the dream of finding that one special partner who fulfills our life, and our dreams.  A reality or fantasy we all have wished for — here symbolized by a romantic dance between an older, but still very much in love couple. And as they dance, it seems to bring all of that together.  So, this fantasy poem, and poem of a long and close romance.

He held her hand
so gently
as she casually brushed against him
slow
deliberate
with that coy smile on her face
that she always had when she felt
close to him

And they looked at each other
exchanging an almost imperceptible glance
as the warmth and electricity shot between them
never dulled
never dampened
after all these many
many years

Then the band began to play
a slow Sinatra number
when he nodded towards the dance floor
as they both pushed back chairs
and began to walk
hand-in-hand, together
to the dance floor

And then
just like the first time
they held each other
she moving so close to him
that each could feel the other’s breathing
they both lost themselves in all those years
they had been together

and the music of who they were
and whom they had become
never
never
stopped
