The Officers Waltz

07 Feb

How We Danced In love

Those Days

My Beautiful Bride

The Orchestra Played

In The Officers Ballroom

With Its Walls

Of Purple

And Borders Edged

With Shining Gilded Cherubs

The Chairs

That Lined The Walls

Were Of The Softest Velvet

The Lights From The Candelabra

That Projected From The Walls

Lit Up The Red Uniforms

That Littered The Floor

Swaying To The Sounds

Of Strauss

We Graced The Floor

Of The Ballroom

Your Golden Curls Shining

Beneath The Chandeliers

That Twinkled In The Glow

Of Your Sparkling Eyes

Illuminated From The Love

Held Within Your Breasts

Your Long Pink Court Dress

Grazing The Floor

I Held You In My Arms

You Recall My Love

That Night We Waltzed

In A Lovers Trance

I Held You In My Arms

We Waltzed Till Early Morn

At The Officers Ball

My Heart Was Breaking

And Ached In Love

Your Love

Tore At My Very Soul

I Did Not Want To Let You

Out Of My Arms

I Did Not Want

To Break The Spell

Of That Moment In Time

With Tears In My Eyes

And Sobs Upon My Heart

I Held You Close

For One Last Dance

The Officers Farewell Waltz

      Thanks for the time in visiting and commenting Sue.
      Sometimes I think I did actually live in the Strauss era, his music resonates in my heart.
      Kind regards

      Good morning gp, thanks for the visit, glad you appreciated the combination of music with the words.
      I like to use music to enhance the storyline without detracting from the story.
