Waltzing Words

Would you like
To dance with
Me right now
To this waltz?

I've been here
Watching you
Who you are

Please say yes
We can dance
All night long
If you like

After that
Perhaps we
Could have a
Moonlit walk

I know that
I would like
To marry
But no rush

Time will pass
I will wait
For your heart
To meet mine

Fall in love
So that we'll
Always dance

When old we
Will dance still
Thinking of
This night here

Would you like
To dance with
Me right now
To this waltz?


Poetry jam challenged us to write a poem inspired by dance.  This poem was my childhood dream.  I've never waltzed with Mike I'm a ballroom but we waltz through life together.

Nice recollection of a childhood dream. And how wonderful to waltz through life with someone. You captured the 1-2-3 of the waltz in this.

Poet Laundry said...

Mary Ann Potter said...

The words "please say yes" triggered an old memory or two in me. A sweet poem.
