You Should Have Seen (poem)

Updated on February 18, 2013

You should have seen them dance they said to me

This couple with their hearts now open wide

A dream come true is where their hopes reside

This pair who shared what love was meant to be

-

They spoke of love that could not be denied

With every turn a flame for all to see

Of what it’s like to let one’s passions free

With every word they shared I sat and sighed

-

They spoke of things they felt so long ago

They moved in dreams to music meant for two

And when they kissed the room was set aglow

-

You should have seen the magic in their show

Sad couple who now shred the lovers’ view

And in the end I only said I know

      The ballroom dances are such an art, and should share special meaning to those so entwined.

      Love the picture which makes the poem really come to life. I felt sad that once the dance was over it was back to reality for the lonely dancers. Great writing.
