Once Upon a December

Gentle hands,
Graceful dance,
Beauty forcing surrender
In a song, through a trance
Once upon a December

Embracing in the cold
Though it seems somewhat bold
To say that I’m waiting
When love isn’t abating
For one lingering face
That my mind can’t erase
As shadows dance in time
To a rhythm so sublime
Telling timeless stories
Hidden amongst memories

The melody of temptation
Spreading across the nation
Without any doubt
Of what this is all about
Extending my emotion
Extending my devotion
Flooding through my mind
I refuse to waste more time
No longer will I pursue
As I give myself to you

Fighting threat
Stronger yet
At the beginning of September
My broken heart was swept away
Once upon a December

I was listening to another song, this time the beautiful “Once Upon a December” from the animated movie Anastasia. It’s a lovely tune, so I based my ideas on that one line: Once upon a December.
