Keep On Dancing - Poem by joyjit sengupta

He dreamt big
She was highly ambitious
They met on the dance floor
It was instant recognition

He floated a limited company
She landed in a high profile job
Life moved on
In comfort and style

But the dance floor
was empty now
The band had
stopped playing
Trophies and pictures
hung on the wall
Gathered dust

The wings of success
Brought long hours
of engagements
All taking their toll
The board rooms, working lunch
dinner parties, business travels
Kept the clock ticking

They had drifted
a bit too far
The loss was greater than the gain
It was a poor bargain

The little raft
of happiness
was floating
on the river of life

Without notice
they set sail
Never to turn back again.
