"Would you mind sharing a waltz with me?"

Even if it is infinite
I've quested for this heart of hearts
I hear yours beat this minute
I understand the fear inside
And the depth of your apprehension
What if I said that yours my dear
Has beat through all dimensions
Then if I add that you have lived
Far back...way back in time
Would you think me a derelict Muse
Just getting words to rhyme
I sense in you this beat so grand
That every move is similar
To the Danube danced in yesterday
Does this seem at all familiar
Can you give me just this memory
Again to hold you close
Listen to your heart near mine
Then have another toast
Lets flow out to the landing
Take in sweet blooming Jasmine
Raise a kiss to yesteryear
Then recall our old imaginings
Let's waltz into tomorrow
With spirits held so tight
Then when you feel as I do
And if it feels all right
Infinity will open up
The prospects of this chance
Then you will be completed
With this never-ending dance
I've missed you for a lifetime
As I flow into your soul
As tender stars ignite and burn
As steeples start to toll
Will you take up all my dances
And never leave my side
As daydreams blend to night bliss
Can we share the evening tides
The ones that are familiar
From ages long ago
When the waltz of all our dances
Brought together two old souls
You see you are forever love
You've sensed it all along
Your chills are merely welcoming
This waltz that does belong
Will you let me hold you closer now
As the music starts
For quests are soon a memory
When two souls share one heart.

Two hearts, beating as one, lost in the rhythm of the night. Sweet one.

"I understand the fear inside" takes a lot of insight and sensitivity to do. It's certainly a gift to be able to see deeper than just the surface.

The last line did it for me Susan.

I believe the heart-cry of every human being is to find this kind of soul entwined love and have it last till death do us part.

You can have my dance card, as I love waltzes..
Reminds me of Engelbert Humperdinck's " The Last Waltz "
Where have you been hiding...The Danube...;)

Good to see you back and in fine form. Revived loves. I can attest to the fact that it is a wonderful phenomena, especially when you both know that it is only a little bit of "unfinished business." I quoted there because that was what was said to me once upon a time not too long ago.
