The night was dark and warm

Bodies sway in the moonlight like a quiet swarm

Couples in love pressed close to each other

Mothers and children dance with one another

How I long to be part of the fun

Then just when a new song has begun…

You swoop in and take my hand

"Come on," you say. I'm lost in my own land

His friends cheer him on for reasons I don't know

What's the big deal? It's just a dance… But slow

I'm pulled in, now everything is a blur

I see you, but nothing else. Is this normal? I'm not sure

You speak to me but I can hardly reply

My words are gone, all I do is sigh

If only you knew

How I adore you
