Dinner For Two

In the beginning a girl meets a boy A connection felt like shock waves An entire lifetime seen in each others eyes Still only babes barely out of school Will you come with me and dine with me Dinner just for two Time passes on but still feels like only yesterday What was challenging is now made easy Together boy and girl grew A night on the town, a little playing around Dinner just for two Moving on in the world, finding their places Never straying far from each others hearts No longer does just a girl meet just a boy Emerges woman to man, innocence gone Responsibilities now playing their role Days changing all on their own Sacrifices made a sing song trade Dinner just for two Life continues somewhat different from the start Younger days gone and spent believing In each others arms days and nights spent Memories of a lifetime built together Days of yesterday the same in their eyes Destined to be together for all time Fate uniting their hearts and souls Stolen moments, quick kisses, sweet embraces Dinner just for two Learning to hold on tight through life When everything around you changes Sometimes time stops when the rainbow ends The pages of their journey's story still evolving Reality and fantasy trying to hold their own To make for an interesting adventure Waves of emotion wash over each other Come let us run away, get away if only for the day Dinner just for two Written by: Shannon Deane Written: June 19th, 2011 For: P.D.'s Poetry Assignment "Can honestly say that was the hardest form of poetry I have tried to attempt to date, I don't think I did enough justice, but this is the result of my rough copy, my apologies for the rough attempt"
