The Dance

Yesterday lingers in my memory today
Perched on a manicured hill after the last bell
All my friends surrounding me 
She strolls by, I catch blue eyes 
glancing quickly my way

A scented envelope...
I rent a white tuxedo for her Sorority Ball
She's dressed in full length blue silk 
Formally announced; I escort her 
through a flowered arch to that shining floor

The band plays a sweet, soulful slow-dance song
I nuzzle her neck, breathing in her perfume scent 
Shivering slightly, she snuggles ever closer 
humming the same melody softly in my ear...

Today I feel Tim's loss, for like many poets on this site he was an old friend. So many sad thoughts to contend with, here Tim found encouragement to write and share his thoughts with like mined souls. And it’s with a very heavy heart, that I must say farewell to Tim and wish him well on his spiritual journey. Rest in peace my friend, Emile.
