Come, Dance with Me.
Dancing couples enhanced my mood.
Lights were dimmed and music subdued.
The man intrigued me, he sat alone
He was sensitive, single and smart
Would he consider a dance with me?
He looked at me, I looked away
Doubt disappeared, I met his gaze
He smiled at me, my heart missed a beat
Was it possible—was he the one?
He rose from his chair and strolled my way
I sat quite still, frozen in time
Lost in sweet thought and love sublime.
With a princely bow he took my hand
His eyes spoke volumes; I rose to dance
—a foretaste of love and romance.
Memories mingled with our dance.
Nothing ever happened by chance.
We married young; knew nothing of life
We lived simply, we loved each other
We knew we’d make it, without a doubt!
I dreamed your dreams, I knew your heart
Through the years we became as one
You taught me to love and cherish our faith
Dance with you?—for a lifetime, no less.
We nurtured our dance and learnt the moves
From Hip Hop kids to Break Dance teens
Developed and waltzed to new routines.
You showed me how to define our dance
With true love; the order of each day
We progressed to classical ballet.
Sands of time slip through the hourglass.
Neither age nor pain will end our dance.
We danced yesterday, we danced today
We’ll dance tomorrow, this dance of life
Bad years are few—but we took that chance.
Your true commitment never fails
You love me with a patient heart
You love me the way I am—I know
It has been that way right from the start.
In the stillness of the night, you hold me.
For always, I want to dance with you
Devotion and love are ours; it’s true.
Silent vibrations stir from within
Our years are of the highest degree
‘Cause I accepted—"Come, dance with me."
