Could I Dance With You?

Dance with You

Could I dance with you
Just once to feel your arms around my waist
No seduction
No obligation

Could I choose the song
Would you let me follow along
Around the floor
Around the world

Would I be too forward to ask from you
A chance to be the girl with you
Before the crowd
Before myself

Should I stop my tongue from asking you
To hold my hand and lead me on
Music filling the air
Music filling my heart

Could I dance with you?

Author Note: one of my very few romantic type poems...all the grace of a courtship and faulty stops of a questioning heart. Dedicated to a friend who must know how much I love her, even if she is all the way in Canada.
