Listen to poem:
And when you look at me once more
a little smile, a passing glance,
I look at you and cross the floor,
to beg if I might have this dance.

You shyly dance, and look aside,
and when you look at me once more,
with fairy face and eyes so wide,
I want to dance forevermore.

A tender kiss our lips explore,
with pounding heart and soul in flight,
and when you look at me once more,
I pray I've found my love tonight.

A passion that I can't disguise,
this kiss that touched my very core,
and then I see it in your eyes,
and when you look at me once more.

Nice story about having this framed as a gift for your wife, Roy. Flowers fade and die, chocolates get eaten. But this gift will last the rest of your lives.

Congrats at your win, Roy! I seem to remember you being quite the hilarious poet, but now I see you can write tender-hearted as well. I love your refrain line! It's the star of the show...

Roy, your piece is good work. And although I consider myself A Godly man to a certain extent, we are all poets, I myself a published poet, been on this site since 2010 round about. I hate alot of fake azz poets comments on here. Tell it like it is. Jeez... We need the positive and negative criticism on our work!

At last an unvarnished comment! I wish we could see more of them. I see you have no skin in this game, so I'll take it as honest, but not helpful, as it lacks detail. I would agree with you, except that all the others I read, save one, were worse. So first place, but in a slow horse race is how I would see it.

You hopeless romantic, Roy. That would never work for me - on the dance floor I'm more Fred Flintstone than Fred Astaire. WILMA!!!!! Well done!

Thanks, Keith. Slow dances only. I wrote this one for my wife, and I wasn't even in the doghouse at the time, so it was received very well.

Thanks, Andrea. I wrote this one for my wife who always wanted a poem about when we first met, in February. This was her birthday gift, which I had framed. She was ecstatic.

Eyes say a lot, most men don't take the time to listen. Like the poem.
