Dance with me

” how are you doing today?”
“It’s a wonderful evening, wouldn’t you say”
“Yes, I -”
“I would love to hold your hand and dance all day”
“Really, why -”
“Oh I love you like crazy, now if I may?”

He holds her hand and takes her away
She steps with doubt and gently he makes her sway

They play in the background the song of the day
The crowd fades around her as he closes in to say..

Relax now my lady
I will hold you all the way

He glides with her across the floor
The corner of her eye is still at the door

She wants to escape and thinks of a way
Brushes her elbow by the glass laden tray

Yet he glides with her across the glass-strewn floor
Closes in on the distance a little bit more

“It’s crazy” she thinks
And finally joins in the dance

He twirls her away
And into his arms
Another lady from the aisle
He was just waiting for his chance
