Slow dance valley

She takes his hand as the mist slowly rolls across their feet.

Still night air. The wet grass beneath their toes sparkled as bright as the stars above.

He quietly follows behind her,watching her night gown flow around her knees.
With a small smile he pulls on her hand. She looks back trotting to him in a flirty gesture. “sway with me” she said as he placed his hips against hers and his forehead against her delicate skin.

Deep breath in. Slow breath out. Deep breath in..Deep breath…in.

Her fingers glided down his arm and to the side of her waist. Meeting his hand they held each other. Dancing in the moon lite.Dancing slow under the stars. They held their love in place. Where nothing could touch them. Peace entered their world.

He closed his eyes as they danced in that field behind her house..
He danced in sync with her body. Floating above the grass like an angle.
In his eyes..she was..
In his eyes she was life.

Singing softly to her he spoke the words that gave him comfort.
“Yeah, I will love you baby – always
And I’ll be there forever and a day – always
I’ll be there ‘til the stars don’t shine
‘Til the heavens burst and the words don’t rhyme
And I know when I die, you’ll be on my mind
And I’ll love you – always

All night,they stood, slowly dancing and whispering sweet nothings that not even god himself could hear. For all that existed was each other. For all that remained great and pure was their love. And for that night it’s all they ever needed.

They danced till the sun rose above the valley.
The valley that had brought them together, thirty five years ago.
