The Last Dance

Could I please have this last dance?
For it could be my last chance
To hold you close and feel you sway
Like you did on our wedding day

Fifty years have passed since then
For fifty more I have a yen
Hope this will not be our last
The years have seemed to fly so fast

Our children dancing on this our day
See the grandchildren they sway
The girls they sway just like their mum
Boys like me dance really bum

A golden dance I wish to share
Let them all watch I don’t care
A kiss to end this thrilling night
Then home to bed to hold you tight

After all these years with you 
I will pray as I always do
That in the morning I will see
Your smiling face look back at me

For once that light at last goes out
I will die I have no doubt
Then in that place were spirits go 
Each other again we will get to know

    You couldn't be 50 yet. Awesome write, Owen. May that dance not be the last for that special someone. It sounds so sweet looking at how they grow old together. Very soft and gallant. Love ya, Toquyen
