A Time To Dance (poem)

Updated on June 4, 2012

There will be time enough for us to dance

To dream with you and love renew once more

And kisses cause our hearts to pause and sore

Another turn to dip in our romance

-

There always will be one more lovers’ tune

A guaranty how close you’ll be to me

To gaze in eyes of starlit skies and see

The angels on the sidelines sigh and swoon

-

I know for now we drift on distant clouds

The storm that came this time to claim will pass

And tears will gain their whirl of pain alas

For this short while our ballroom hides in shrouds

-

Till morning breaks in new and lasting song

Sleep now my love and soon I’ll be along

      Ahhh. I loved this! You touched my soul on this one. I like the video also, the music reminded me of Antonio Banderas in Desperado :) Gosh, I loved the beginning of that movie where he sings-plays guitar-protects the girl. But I do believe I was a dancer in another life. ( joking).

      But this hub made my day.
