The City of Lights was Dark

by Sean Allen

We were sitting in a cafe
when the dark clouds swept in.
Soon the rain began to fall;
thunder added to the din.

Lightning struck from the sky
and smote a power line.
Soon all the lights on the block
ceased to glow and shine.

You and I, we ran outside
and danced in the street.
We jumped and sang at the top of our lungs
and I swept you off your feet.

I was drenched to the bone,
and you were soaking too.
And while we spun and laughed and kissed,
I knew I'd die for you.

I have had a good fun life
and that one day in September,
the day the City of Lights was dark,
that is the best day I can remember.
