In Mid Step

You finally asked me to dance.
Did you read my mind?
What luck, my favorite love song
fills the air.
When I put my hand in yours
did you feel me tremble?
With every breath, I inhale your scent.
You make me dizzy.
I feel your hand in the curve of my back
pulling me ever so close.
I think I stopped breathing.
This slow song is almost over.
My cheek moves away from yours
and we are face to face.
Your warm breath tickles my eyelashes.
Our lips have never been this close before.
Oh, how I want to kiss you.
We stand, in mid step,
hearing the song's last refrain.
Sadly, the swaying ends
and I hear my unquenched lips say
"Thank you for the dance"
as we part
and time moves forward once again.
