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.
The day you took me dancing,
I knew we’d be together forever,
dancing till the stars –
faded from the sky.
Our love going so deep,
your heart I want to keep,
never be far from my side –
so I can be dancing with you forever.
Always till the end of time,
till there are no more rhymes,
the stars no longer shine,
rainbows faded to black and white –
I know you’ll still be mine.
Just never thought,
what would happen,
if the angels took you dancing,
while I waited my turn,
knowing for a long time it would not come.
Now you’re dancing along the Milky Way,
but I had to stay,
alone with my memories,
of a love that continues shining bright.
The superglue ended yesterday,
it has always been that way,
nothing seems right anymore
and my heart is still in pieces.
Then you came to me,
vowing your love so true,
never meant to leave me alone and blue.
You’ll be waiting on the other side,
so now I put on our love songs,
rolling back the years,
threatening a veil of tears,
lighting a candle,
knowing you are close by.
While I long for the day,
we’ll be together once more,
in this life I know you’ll guide me,
so as the music plays
and the memories come shining through,
in my dreams I’ll go on dancing with you forever more.

What a beautiful and sad poem. And the Buck Owens tune works perfectly. This poem especially resonates because of a recent breakup.

Thank you and sorry to hear that moonlake. It is difficult always at Christmas but you know they are always with us and close by and the memories have to be of comfort to us always.
You're welcome, Chris.

These are beautiful and healing words for anyone who has lost someone so close. Thank you for reminding us there is hope.

I lost my husband 4 years ago in Dec. He loved Christmas and the kids and grandkids coming to our house. Christmas isn’t the same I’m always glad when it’s over, life isn’t the same.
Loved your poem. I’m so sorry for your loss.

Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Thank you, Liz. My sympathies with you. I lost my husband suddenly in August 2017 which brought me back to my homeland the US heading away from too painful memories.
Thank you, Paul.
Thank you, Louise.
Thank you, Bill. A very Merry Christmas to you and Bev and of course, the barnyard too.
Thank you, Shauna. So sorry for your loss. Yes, it is a difficult time and seems to just get more painful. But they are with us and watching over us and that is of comfort.
Thank you, Pamela.

You poetry was beautiful, and the loss of your loved one rang out. Knowing you will see him on the other side is something I would hang onto also. Wishing you happy holidays even with your sadness.

Rasma, this is so beautiful. Christmas must be very hard for you. I think I'm beginning to know something of how you feel. I lost my father less than two weeks ago.
Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on December 21, 2018:
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas as you dance your way into 2019.

Lovely piece Rasma. So sad and heartfelt. I always would like to think that those we love and cherish would be waiting there and watching over us. Nice work

Very poignant! I can feel the emotion in this, and it brought tears to my eyes, as I just lost my husband 4 months ago. I fully understand all the feelings you've expressed here, and my heart goes out to you.
