The Dance that Once Was

3 comments

She tiptoes across

The living room floor

Remembering the dance

That once was and

Is no more

Longing to let the music

Carry her away

Wistfully, quietly,

Her heart begins to sway

As soft as the flickering

Candle light

The music begins to shine

From her eyes

A tentative step forward

And backward she goes

A different dance now

One her heart surely knows

Steps she can make

Despite her advanced age

The remembrance of her youth

Carries her away

Where once again

She tiptoes across

The living room floor

Reliving the beautiful dance

That once was and will be

Forever more.
