Take a step...
Give a bow...
Take in the dream...

The delicate light,
The gentle sounds,
A memory of innocence surreal...

Take his hand, let him lead,
A supple breeze, the comfortable contrast of his warmth,
The moon, the stars, the perfect sight,
The reflection on a the soft mist above the water...

A beautiful night,
An ethereal dance,
A beauty to behold,
An evening to remember...

Another step,
A leisurely spin,
A lift and a twirl,
The romanticism of a brief and gentle kiss...

A simple red rose holding the complexity of eternity,
A dramatic ending...
The evanescence of a September's dream.
