It was their first slow dance together. The young man had waited a long time for this moment. He looked in her eyes and said, “I love you.”
She leaned toward him and whispered in his ear, “I’ll love you for as long as the music plays.”
His heart began to break at her words. The young man wished the dance would go on forever, but less than three minutes later it ended. He looked at her with sad eyes, nodded, and began to walk away.
She reached for his hand, locked her eyes on his, and whispered, “The music is still playing in my heart.”
It kept playing for the rest of their lives.
