“…kiss me beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor…” 

I wish I were the young singer in the band
You and I would be
Entwined within the love of our own lyrics at hand
My thoughts holding on to the encore moment
All the while, you could whisper a request to the Universe

“…lift up your open hand and make the fireflies dance…”

I wish I were the young partner in your ballroom dance routines
You and I would be
Entwined within the love of our own tango and rumba dance steps
Your heart holding on to the graceful gliding moment
All the while, I could whisper a simple request

“Kiss me down by the broken tree house
Swing me upon it’s hanging tire…”

Lovers embracing on the beach at sundown / sun...

I wish I were the leading young actress in all your stage plays
You and I would be
Entwined within our own steamy romantic scenes
Although you be ninety-two and I a mere decade away
All the while, our eyes could meet between the satiny whispering sheets

“…Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance

Silver moon’s sparking
So kiss me.”

I wish I were the young star you long to kiss in your loving embrace.

      Hi J.! For some reason the song has been playing often on the local radio stations so thought it be a compliment for the subjunctive mood…glad you joined in with the band today. 😉

    Passionate, romatic, inspiring. Romance should be pursued no matter how long a couple has been together. We should always find those little magical things that keeps the spark alive!

    Wow! I love, love the romanticism on this post. Steaming hot poem. And I love that you have put that resistance part “My thoughts hanging on to the encore”. Urgh! Irresistible. Love, love this post, Sunshine. A masterpiece!
