The Waltz – Author Adam Levon Brown


The way I looked at you;

like you were the last star in the darkened night sky,

like you were my only hope,

my only guide on my long journey home


Little did I know that you would look at me;

like I was the answer to all of your deepest questions

A ship sailing near when you were a castaway

on a desert island


I was the cure for your loneliness

You were the bastion of hope that I so longed for

I took your hand that night and we danced

as everyone else just stood and watched in wonder


We danced like snowflakes as they weave through the sky

and like snowflakes,

we melted into the ground with each guided step


I was the luckiest guy in the world,

to have such a beautiful flower in my arms

And then you whispered to me,

“I know we just met, but I think I love you”


For a brief instant,

My best childhood memories flashed through my mind

and that is exactly what I see every single time

I look into her luminescent golden beautiful eyes


That is the day I met her;

My goddess.

And that is the day that my heart

became whole for the first time in my life.
