A grade school dance.

The Key

by Thomas Bowling

The Key

When I saw her, she seemed beyond my reach
So far above what I could be
I looked to the heavens and did beseech
That somehow this girl would eventually see me

I turned away, there was no chance
A tap on my shoulder
Would I like to dance?
I was shy, but she was bolder

Twelve-years-old at a grade school dance
We met each other and took a chance
When it was over I could see
She had given to me, her heart's key

A poem about any type of key contest entry
