Last Dance

                                                   they danced like they had never danced before

                                                 with joy in their hearts and tears in their eyes

                                              while whispering and holding hands

                                               under dim lit street lights and soft moonlight

                                                they always knew how it would need to be

                                                 from the very first day they met

                                              he; drinking coffee

                                                 and she; searching for a ‘Treasure Island’ copy

                                       the truth was that he was walking by on that rainy day

                                       he was drawn in when he saw her

                                              and this was their last night together

                                         she shut her eyes to burn this memory into her heart

                                         she could keep this one thing forever

                                      even if they would forever be apart

                                   they continued on, to their favorite after hours spot

                                       and they continued their dance

                                    with broken hearts

                                   then came the morning and the realization

                                     that life has to be lived

                                    life has to go on

                                         and when faced with the choice

                                     sometimes you have to risk it all

                                   they stepped in the sunlight

                                     “good morning”, he said

                                    then they walked off together in the same direction

                                     because they chose love
