Artist's Description

This is another of the flowers from my show and poems for her.

I am not too big on the opera or the ballet but you wanted to go so I went with you.
I dressed up like you said I wore your favorite suit.
You pulled out something I had never seen you looked so good to me.
We called a cab to take us there you wanted to relax.
You said my driving would kill the mood so we took a cab that night.
The cab ride was a different feeling I felt like we were rich.
The two of us going to the ballet driven in cab.
I opened up the door and took a step out, and took your hand my darling wife you looked so good tonight.
And as we walked to the door to this holy place I took one final look at my lovely wife.
You looked so happy to be here it made me smile inside.
To see you standing in the line to finally get inside, I asked myself why had I hated that this night would come.
What was my problem about this was it just my hangup?
Here I was going to the ballet to watch some men in tights,
jump an twirl like little girls while they pranced on stage that night.
But as we entered into the room the place was one delight.
Lit in all kinds of gold lights and velvet on the walls.
It gave the feeling of royalty and you were the queen tonight.
We took our seats and your lovely eyes were glued to everything.
Like a little girl in a doll shop your eyes told everything.
Oh how you looked at all the people coming in the place and noted to me all the details engraved on all the walls.
You didn’t miss a moment of this lovely night.
But most of all you really shined when the dancers came out.
They pranced and twirled and did all types of movements.
I saw a different vision of these men in little tights.
They did all types of leaps and twirls to the classics that night.
I have to say what they did was more than I had thought, anyone could do with a mortal body.
But oh the evening was all your as I sat and looked at you.
Your shining eyes and lovely glow was brighter than the lights.
And as they danced away the night I could hear your every breath.
You were caught in every movement made as if it was you dancing.
Oh this was worth all the pain to dress up and come with you.
To only see your smiling face I would do it all again.
This evening showed me that a man can dance with silly tights and have more women fall in love with them than a macho man.
Your loving heart has showed me one more thing that I might of missed.
And as I think about tonight I am glad that your my wife.
