Remember It Is My Last Dance
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.
