May I have this Dance?

Picture this!

You're sitting at a table, beside the window of the hotel ballroom. It's dusk outside. You can just see the river from the window. The moon's light reflecting on the still waters. A lonely boat is cruising down the river, dim lights visible from the cabin. You can see what looks like two lovers sitting in the cabin, holding hands, sipping a glass of wine, looking into each other's eyes.

The band starts to play. The tune cathes your ear. It's one of your favourites. As you turn around you see me walking across the floor.

I've been watching you all night; admiring you, summoning up the courage to come over and ask you to dance. Something, the mood, the light, the song, something just seem to suggest the moment is right.

"May I have this dance?"

You smile, and put out your hand to take mine. I can feel my heart soar, like it's never soared before. And then the song starts; and for a few magical minutes the world is good, life is good.

Listen! can you hear the music? close your eyes and listen!

"When I fall in love
It will be forever.
For I'll never fall in love
In a restless world like this is
Love is ended before it's begun
And too many moonlight kisses
Seem to cool in the warmth of the sun.

When I give my heart
It will be completely.
For I'll never give my heart.
And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I fall in love with you."

This is for no one in particular. But this is for all the romantics in Blog Land. And I know there are alot of romantics in Blog Land, even if we don't always admit it.
