Sadly, very few people are lucky enough to find their perfect match and then settle down for a lifetime together. That is now mainly reserved for the story books. Instead, most seem to miss opporunities whether from fear of being turned down or from simply off timing and they assume that there will always be time left to make a move or that someday they'll end up together. But what happens if their isn't any more time? What if it were to be the end of the world tomorrow and you finally figured out who your supposed to love and they finally figured it out in return? This poem shares a story of two people whose timing was always off and finally they meet back up again and figure it out. They get together for the last night before the end of the world. With no holes barred and no fear, they intend on making the most of their one and only night together. In the end, they find comfort in imagining that they have been married for years and have grown old together. And in truth, they were able to spend the rest of their life together as they had wished; even if it were only for the last night of their life.

Tonight we will be movie stars

We'll drive the fastest cars

Tonight we can do anything

We can be anyone we want

Come on let's dance in the street

Just keep on moving your feet

Let our imagination carry us away

With only good dreams here to stay

Tonight you'll get your first tattoo

And I'll wear something see-through

Tonight we will have our fling

We will close our eyes and sing out loud.

Let's run naked in the park

We can fly somewhere on a lark

Let our imagination carry us away

With only good dreams here to stay

Tonight is our last chance

All or nothing, in or out

We have nothing left to lose

If this is the end, I don't want to fade out

Tonight is the end of the world

So kiss me until my toes curl

Tonight all our wishes come true

And we'll finally say I love you

It's coming like a train

But we'll just sip champagne

Let our imagination carry us away

With only good dreams here to stay

Tonight seems to be our farewell song

But we'll go on and on

And in our heads, we're lying in our bed

Hair all grayed since the year we wed

We'll be in peace tonight

And in the end, if you're afraid

Just relax and watch the waves

Roll in, for I will hold your hand
