Do you remember when we danced the night away,
our laughing steps banishing the darkness?
Do you remember how we would slowly drift and sway
like flying flower petals, we were a marvelous mess.
I remember when time seemed to stop passing
and rest awhile in the sunlit forest clearing as we slept,
dreaming together of pleasant tomorrows surpassing
in splendor any of the hidden desires that we kept.
We couldn’t even call it love then, it was a seed unfurling,
a poignant moment of magic and mystery and more,
that superseded reality and made me want to sing.
You made me want to sing, about you, the one I adore.
Though time passed and the music stopped playing
and the flames that burned so bright are buried in winter
every time I hear the melody of spring, I can hear you saying
that you love me and all the lonely nights pass as a blur.
Do you remember when we danced the night away?
