A Story from the Past

A young man, searching for himself.

A young woman, searching for a home.

On leave, attending a dance.

Downtown, looking to unwind from a week of work.

Eyes meet – love at first sight?

Maybe just shy smiles and a polite dance.

Headed out in the morning.

Wishing for a way out.

Not much in common, even their language.

But the heart wants what it yearns for:

Fresh starts, new beginnings, hope for a future, burgeoning love.

  1. This is beautiful, Aileen. The beginning lines, especially, reminded me of my in-laws. They also met during the war at a dance. Thanks for sharing this special tribute.

  2. “The heart want what it yearns for…” Perfect description. I really like this poem, Aileen. I can enter into the moment of their meeting. Lovely photo too.
