Surrounded by harried shoppers
and the discorporate voice calling
for attention in another aisle,
he takes my hand and we dance.

It’s what we do.
We dance in Wal-Mart.

Some people stare, others hurry away;
a few smile
for they recognize the love we share.

It’s the most romantic thing
I’ve ever done,
this dancing in Wal-Mart.

One hand in mine, the other on my waist,
we smile, he spins me, we pull close,
moving gently to a song only we hear,
a sweet kiss, and the dance ends.

You’ll not find it in the pages
of a Harlequin Romance,
because this dancing-in-Wal-Mart-love,
it’s the real thing.

It’s funny how a little two-step
can make shopping so

I have to echo Regis--It's delightful! I just wish you had a picture of the two of you dancing there.

Delightful, Leysa. Would that all relationships could experience a "dance in Wal-Mart." Love and best wishes,

Nicly done and so glad to see you back on the posting list Leysa, we missed you.

Wow did this bring back memories. In the first months of dating my lady and I were in Kohl's when we heard over the sound system, "Can You Feel The Love Tonight," I made us drop everything and start dancing- I sang it to her...
Got to get back there.
I agree- the real thing.
Thanks for the glorious reminder.

Thank you for bringing a smile into my heart. What a wonderful way to dance.
