If my life were a movie
In the future there’d be a moment
When our eyes would meet mid laugh
The director would cue music
And the audience would hear
“For Once in my Life”
And there’d be a montage
Of walks, and park picnics, and kisses
And silly little dances in the kitchen
And of us reading books and singing
And the audience, especially the girls
Would be swooning when the lyrics
‘For once I can say
This is mine, you can’t take it’ played
As he’d swoop me up for more kisses
Because they’d know
That by this part of the movie
I deserved ‘my wish come true’
Then through movie magic
It would be night
And I’d be in a backless black dress
And he in a suit
We’d drink champagne
And he’d ask me to dance
And the band would play “At Last”
The soundtrack playing
Till we were in the bedroom
The camera closing in on slow kisses
And the song would slowly die off
And in the next scene
I’m in his arms and it would be morning
And the girls in the theater would sigh
Cause they got jipped of the love scene

  1. The best love scenes are in our heart. The girls must learn this. There in the heart is the magic, movie or not. I really like the scene setup. Don’t stop directing your own life or these great poems!

    1. Thank you for liking it. I agree, love scenes should be left to the imaginings of our hearts. Thanks for the encouragement, sometimes I feel directionless, but I anchor myself in a poem, and it points me the right way.
