Soft Moments (poem)

Soft were those moments I would drift with you

You took my hand to change our destiny

And in that dance we sparked a dream come true


You taught me steps to see those rough times through

Yet as I stumbled oft my heart told me

Soft were those moments I would drift with you


You guided me to see a world anew

Those hours spent to mold those two called we

And in that dance we sparked a dream come true


There in the dawn of moonlight’s special hue

Our mist was drawn that all the world could see

Soft were those moments I would drift with you


But jealous eyes weren’t happy with our view

They wanted things just like they used to be

And in that dance we sparked a dream come true


Sweet as the flowers blessed by lovers’ dew

Were those who shared this special memory

Soft were those moments I would drift with you

And in that dance we sparked a dream come true

Cha Cha Cha - My best dance (This is not me)

Your words are beautiful. I wish I could dance also. Perhaps we all have our gifts. Yours is poetry.

Was never much of a dancer. Could carry rhythm with no problem, and was coordinated, but thought it looked silly on me. Oh well. You present a beautiful picture. Great Job!

I love dancing poems. There is something about a dance between two people that has the ability to make everything around them cease to exist.

I so enjoy watching the ballroom dance competitions and I thoroughly enjoyed this lovely ode to dancers everywhere.

Glad you stipulated it wasn't you. I already know you fence and I would not have been surprised to learn you ballroom and cha cha as well!
