Dancing is Romancing

Dancing is a wonderful way

To express the love you feel

As you sway to the music

And you feel two heartbeats as one

Dancing is a wonderful way

To stay close together

As the passion of your love consumes you

Dancing, till you can’t dance any more

Dancing is a wonderful way

To express all that you feel

A way to look deep into one another’s eyes

To be together toe to toe

Breath to breath

To swing together in rhythm

Feeling each move

As you sway from side to side

Dancing for romancing

Dancing to express your love

There is no feeling

Like dancing face to face

In the dark by candlelight

Under the full moon

Shining bright

Touching so very close

Holding on for life itself

Feeling the beat from heart to heart

Dancing till your heart is sent reeling

Dancing till there is no feeling

Of time or space

Dancing as if the stars are whirling by

No other feeling quite like it

As you sway and turn

Throughout all time

My Mom and Dad loved to dance... just published the page in Mom's diary, from 75 years ago where they went to the Capital City to hear and dance to the Paul Whiteman orchestra! They were thrilled to be there!! 1939! ;-)

I love dancing, Rasma. It's been quite a while since I've danced heart to heart with someone. You're poem is beautiful. I was with the lovers through each step they took.

I love it when my hubby and I dance around the room some evenings. You have summed it up nicely with your words, "There is no feeling

Like dancing face to face

In the dark by candlelight

Under the full moon

Shining bright."

The video is a nice touch to your poetry. What a great song.

Dancing… romance and rhythms that tell a story, as does this delightful poem, “throughout all time.” Cary Grant…a wonderful dancer, and just the man to complement this verse over the years. :-)

Thank you Jodah.

Glad you enjoyed it Blossom.

Glad you enjoyed this Michelle.

Sounds like you have some nice evenings teaches. Glad you enjoyed this and the video.

Glad you enjoyed this Genna. That is why I chose the video because someone had made it great by adding Cary Grant.
