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.
