Come Dance With Me

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

play-your-love-songs-for-me

Time rushes by,
we never know why,
but you and I,
always in love,
always so much to say,
rejoicing in so many happy songs,
that it never mattered that time slipped by -
just as long as you danced with me.


Dance with me,
send me reeling,
make me feel as if I'm flying,
flying in your arms,
as we twirl about,
no matter where we were,
my heart always rejoiced -
as long as you danced with me.


Sad times when lovers have to part,
one left behind,
as the teardrops start,
but special memories always shine,
knowing forever you're mine,
remembering always,
the love we had
and it all comes back,
when in my dreams you dance with me.

Beautiful and poignant. I love dancing - it boosts the spirits and is great exercise!

Your poem has the perfect rhythm for a dance.

This is a beautiful poem and so touching. Your song choice was perfect also.

Our loved ones are always still with us in our hearts. Touching as always, and the Leonard Cohen song is the perfect accompaniment.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on November 16, 2020:

It is the memories we make together that live on inside our hearts for a lifetime.

It is sad when one departs but the memories play forever.

Nice one.
