For Now and Forever - IV

SHALL WE DANCE

"One more please" Josh signaled

"Sure sir" Bartender replied

Just then, from the corner of his eye, he saw a man leading his lady to the dance floor. A few moments later, another couple joined them. Before long, the dance floor was filled with couples only, holding each other close, smiling and gently moving to the sound of music.

It still feels like our first night together
Feels like the first kiss ....

Josh suddenly became aware of the occasion. It was Valentines Day.

"Sir" the bartender interrupted "your drink"

Josh looked at his glass and smiled.

The world around him began to dissolve, melting into images from another time, another place as his eyes stared blankly in the thin air.

He turned around to face the dance floor.

She stood there in a vibrant pink blouse, a high cut black trousers and the black satin wrapped around her neck, contrasting and complimenting the white of her skin. Her face shimmering in the darkness, smiling generously at him.

He put down his glass and rushed towards her, with an urgency unknown to himself.

He took her hand tenderly and drew her close to himself, sweeping her across the dance floor.

"What?" Grace said, embarrassed and startled by his actions.

Josh put a finger on her lips "Shhhhh!!!"

Grace "But!"

Josh "Shhhh!!!"

Grace "Jo..!!"

Josh "Shhh!!! ...listen"

It's gettin' better baby
No one can better this ...

It was her favorite song. She looked at him and her eyes lit up.

He lifted her arms softly and put them around his neck. United in form and movement, they moved effortlessly to the symphony... elegance and style... like a dream...as if she was flying on a magic carpet in his arms.

Slowly, she began to let go as Josh led her gently through a series of patterns, blending flawlessly with the rhythm of the music... filled with the warm joy of her free spirit... no bounds, no fear.

The first time our eyes met it's the same feelin' I get
Only feels much stronger and I wanna love ya longer

As the song progressed, Josh drifted in time... only to find his empty arms and an empty glass.

I remember the smell of your skin
I remember everything
I remember all your moves
I remember you
I remember the nights ya know I still do

"One more please" Josh signaled

"Sure sir" Bartender replied

With every word and every breath I'm prayin'
That's why I'm sayin'...
