A Magical Moment


It is over twenty-five years ago,
Since this lady performed a live show:
Way back then, she was one of four,
Topping the charts with hit songs galore.

She watches in the wings, waiting her turn:
Within her heart, she feels a little concern.
Waiting onstage is her partner in crime:
There’s no turning back: now is the time.

As the intro is played, the crowd go wild,
And from her co-star, she receives a smile;
His welcoming gesture, gentlemanly and gracious,
Beckons her forwards onto the stage so spacious.

Wearing long boots and a black lacy dress,
She makes her entrance – now for her test;
She walks onstage to thousands of cheers:
Her face says ‘I can’t believe that I’m here.’

The spotlight follows her every move -
Her nerves, her co-star hopes he can soothe.
She takes a bow, then, with outstretched hand,
She takes a moment to acknowledge the band.

He sings, ‘Can’t believe it’s really you.’
Neither can believe that it’s really true.
She smiles at him, as she sings a line in reply,
And suddenly a spark ignites within her eyes.

His silent language keeps urging her on,
And, very soon, her nerves are all gone;
She then, very visibly, begins to relax,
And her old star quality comes flooding back.

Despite the fact that it has been an age,
She is soon feeling confident upon the stage.
The two singers are so amazing together -
The magic of this moment will last forever.

At the end of the song, they thank everyone;
Both of the singers have had so much fun.
Having made her comeback singing a duet,
For more live performances, she is now set.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this to capture the magic when Gary Barlow and Agnetha Faltskog sang a duet for the 'Children In Need Rocks' concert in November 2013.
