The Sweetest Story


 

Music Box Masquerade

The music box opens
Two lovers come to light
Together in rapture
Forever on this night.

As I watch them waltzing
My dreams begin to sway
I dance to the music
With a silent Chasse.

My soul is now dancing
With the music box man
Time captures rhapsody
My fantasia began.

He lifted me gently
A debonair Releve
Then a whirl and a spin
To Tchaikovsky’s ballet.

Two passionate dancers
Under moonbeams so bright
Syncopated rhythm
Expressions of delight.

In this embrace of love
The music softly fades
The morning dawns anew
My dream a masquerade.
