THE LAST DANCE I stare at him across the room, Flute of Champagne in my hand. He's tall, mature, distinguished, He's strumming with the band. He turns to me and smiles, And nods with a sly wink. I look away too quickly, And stare down at my drink. I want to move toward him, Should I take the chance? But now he's right beside me: "May I have this dance?" He's swaying to the music, His arm around my waist. He moves my head into his shoulder, And whispers, "I was hoping you would wait." © ELR 2013
