We Dance

We dance—
we live, learn, and love
play and cry

Life is a dance—a swirling of people and events
colors and feelings
creating beautiful togetherness

We fall, we rise
sometimes rough, sometimes flair
life’s lessons learned

The beat carries laughter and tears
the rhythm flows on, a river to the sea
we spill into eternity.

Be on the floor when the band plays
as songs once sung forever disappear
melodies infusing life into souls.

We journey
with streams of people
circling round the ballroom floor.

Till the night is finished
and the quiet forces us
to remove our felt-bottomed shoes

The dance is over
but we were there
we danced—and so we are.
