Nostalgic clap, clap dance

What a lovely dance you portray
nostalgia overcame me reading this
as I once held her close and tight
right in the middle of the floor
all glared with open wild and wide eyes
as they saw,...

I pulled her in and tickled her here and there
unmindful of the others glare
they all did smile and stare
then clapped as I kissed her
then and there

as a teenager
who wouldn’t mind
a Frenchy of any kind
as we left the floor
towards the door...

claps we heard from all on the floor
you have done me a favour
remembered our maiden dance
my first LOVE
now my wife
we still dance
life ages. on...

in S1 L2 over came (overcame) is all one word
as they saw,...... as they saw... (an ellipses is just three dots)
this is a very sweet poem, is it a real remembrance? or created out of that wonderful imagination of yours?
