Romantic Serenade

It was the Halloween Ball In the season of the fall A mysterious bachelor called To the attention of us all The biggest mansion party The cooks food is hearty The host is definitely tardy For most of his own party The musicians play the last dance The men try to romance But don't stand a chance For the host is here! They glance To a man dressed in black wear In Old Spanish attire bare The women began to stare For he was a young stallion, a Mare From a top the stairs he walks The ladies gather to stalk The man who doesn't talk Like birds they came in flocks He wore black clothes and a red sash White trim and a black mask To find a dancer is his task But who will he ask? The only girl not drawn to attention Is sitting alone no words to mention He takes her hand There is no tention Soft as a doves wings a cool sensation The proceed to the middle of the floor She doesn't know what's in store A lot of musicians come in..there is more! Some of them rich, some are poor He takes his tunic off then starts The music is written from the heart The stand at attention far apart Then the solo with the silver harp The drum beat starts going They come together emotions flowing His risque' dance he is showing To her mind he is boasting They move and dance like magic For five minutes the song's romantic The crowd watching in motionless static The songs end was very tragic The last beats were hard to miss They drew close and started to kiss For her it was a mystical bliss His every movement caressed her lips The awkward silence he starts to leave The young lady can hardly breathe She starts to faint...she can't see The wings appeare and she falls asleep The girl awakes in her bed it seems In her school clothes it was only a dream The sound of water foils the scene Her eyes still blurry it's hard to see She wanted this for real Her heart is sealed Then fate will have to deal Her new loves appeal She notices something on the ground It's the wings and mask she found And a CD blank is bound She puts it in and the sound... Is the unforgettable song It was to her so long But there was something wrong Where did this come from? In the CD case is an Old Engligh letter It said "Undoubtedly for the better I am gone with the weather Your kiss I will always remember forever and ever
