Our First Dance

So I dreamed of you last night,
A dream of pure laughter,
But in this dream,
We danced
Into the morning light,

It twas no ordinary dance,
We danced close,
Staring into the eyes of our partner,
It twas like a waltz,

One two three,
One two three four,
One two three,

But do I remember your name?
Really wished I did,
Remembering your smile,
Oh your beautiful smile,
But… those eyes,
Speckles of joy,
Shimmering through your eyes,

I still do remember that first embrace,
Your hands so soft,
As soft as velvet,
Holding me as we danced,
A dance I cannot and will not forget,
I was dazed by your beauty,
The first time we danced,
To a song close at heart,

One two three,
One two three,
Out and a loop,
Out and around,
Out and a loop,
And into my arms once again

It twas magical,
It twas that of pure beauty,
I waited for time,
To give us another round,

As I lay down my head,
Thinking of dreams ahead,
I asked to myself,
May I never forget,
The dance we had on the night we met…

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
