Remember It Is My Last Dance

Updated on March 24, 2018

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I live in the suburbs of Riga, Latvia. I have a wonderful cat named Sid.

The path of true love,

may be smooth,

bright sunshiny days

and deep velvet nights.

You always made me smile,

knowing that the very last dance,

we would dance by candlelight –

would always be ours.

Many dreams we shared,

some paths led us through thorny roses,

there were days of tears and fears –

but it was for sure that rainbows always came out.

Hand in hand we dreamt by moonlight,

sharing moments of quiet solitude

and always no matter what,

as the night was coming to an end –

the last dance was ours.

When the angels danced you to heaven,

I was left to dream alone,

searching for you swinging on a star

or dancing across the Milky Way.

Life still goes on

and sparkling memories lead me on and on,

while nights find you in my dreams,

but no matter what else may lie ahead,

the day I meet you up above,

remember that last dance is mine,

taking me from this life to the next -

together tripping the light fantastic across the skies above.

        Thank you, Jackie. Cohen has many songs that inspire. This one I enjoyed how he sang but it is not his original. Most of his others are.

        Discovered Cohen only a couple years ago and was surprised how much I liked him. He has another dance song I am just crazy about. Of course this one fits your beautiful poem.

        I had no notice of this. Guess I need to refollow you.

        Thank you, Manatita. If possible we will have to take at least one turn on the floor, dancing.

        All I can tell you, Bill is that I don't know how it is easier for anyone but I do know that I keep having and have had visits and I know he checks to see if I am alright. Anyway, I wish you both many, many more years of dancing.

        Thank you for that FlourishAnyway. Glad you both liked this.

        Seriously, Rasma, I pray I die before Bev does....I will be completely lost without my dancing partner. :)
