There has to be a closure to The Last Dance. So here it goes…
The night was young, boisterous and alive,
Everyone was in a mood to jive.
As old and young bones gyrated to the beat,
He cast his eyes around, if only they could meet.
She swayed to the music with gay abandon,
But her eyes scanned the guys at random.
Suddenly in the melee, their eyes locked,
Their gaze widened and they were shocked.
For she was bespectacled and no longer slim
And he, greyed with a paunch, no more trim.
But his eyes twinkled just the same,
Her smile was still dazzlingly same.
They moved towards each other on their own volition,
They had to dance, there was no confusion.
He extended his hand and twirled her around,
She moved effortlessly and held her ground.
They giggled as they stomped on the floor,
Around them rose a huge cheering roar
Everyone stamped and clapped and goaded them on,
At last the much anticipated last dance was on.
Soon they were tired and gasping for breath,
For age had slowed them but not their zest.
They embraced warmly and went their way,
Finally the ghost of past to rest laid.
