“Just Like the Movies”
written on 9/16/06

the reel is spinning
the lights are out
the projector is playing my future life
this can’t be just a romantic movie
i need it to be more than fiction

the opening scene – “cupid’s arrow”
that stunning gaze shot right through my heart
my heart is racing, outweighs my fears
a few compliments, the embers ignite

the second act – “the seed is planted”
the butterflies have still not faded
every kiss just like the first
holding hands and uncontrollable laughter
we dance to music playing from our souls
we draw attention but we don’t care
we hold the world between our hands

the third selection – “undying affection”
the lovebirds act just like magnets
she still grabs my face, i still hold her tight
we both can’t hide our delight
she’s embedded in my soul
she says the only words i ever needed to hear

the next chapter – “still supportive”
i still comfort her every time she cries
she still cheers me up every time she doesn’t see me smile
we both know we have something most can only dream of
we profess our love and kiss through the night
and all the while still holding each other tight

the final scene – “a wedding chapel”
two new rings, one old love
two sincere vows for one unioned soul
another kiss just like our first

the encore plays – “we beat the odds”
many years from now we remain the same
holding hands and uncontrollable laughter
we still dance to music playing from our souls
we still draw attention but we don’t care
we still hold the world between our hands
and between our hands, our wedding bands

the reel is spinning
the lights are out
the projector is playing my future life
this can’t be just a romantic movie
this story will be so much more than fiction
