Slow Dance

Another night to find myself…

The day had been long one
When I dragged in at night,
The house seemed very dim, except for
Just one hallway light

And there I found her waiting,
A twinkle in her eyes.
She looked at me and smiling said
“I got you a surprise”

The music started softly,
And favorite, old and slow;
And we began to move together
Just like long ago

The tune so beautiful and sweet,
Are bodies slowly swayed;
And as we held each other there,
The long day drained away

And dancing moved to kisses,
Then our kisses to our bed;
And long-forgotten was the day
In the long night ahead

A slow dance given by surprise
On 1 to 10? A 10 —
I never stopped, but somehow I’m
In love with her
Again
