century days when gazing into your
sweetheart's eyes was so much more exciting than
staring at your smartphone for the millionth time?
Can you recall a time when chats took place in person,
when faces showed feelings and bodies talked,
before the smiley, emticon revolution?
Don't you miss the thrill of getting ready for that first real date,
floating high in the sky, giddy with butterflies,
in the arms of your true soul mate?
Mind you, meeting on Skype and FaceTime
come pretty close, but real hugs in real-time,
they have yet to host!
Unlike a star studded night, jasmine thick in the air,
hands sweaty, head dizzy, knees weak - (who will dare
to make that first move?) - and prove, with a kiss,
that now, they've only got eyes for each other, and
with hearts aflutter, all doubts they dismiss.
And because I believe that music is the most
expressive language of all, I hope you enjoy the fun
and flirty duet below, and indulge my current mood
for those sweet and innocent times long ago!
