Portraits Poetry Series #45: Love’s Eternal Dance

Portraits Series

 
Life is a dance
And we know it well
The soar of music in our hearts
And we embrace
While sitting across the room,
But no one else can tell
For only you and I hear the music.

Is it a tango or some exotic dance?
For though we sashay well,
It changes in time
Different steps – different movements
Two shadows swaying, becoming one
And no one else can tell,
For only you and I hear the music.

And despite the measured length of steps
And the length of time spent within your grasp
The familiarity of your moves
Sways me still
As if new in love, but well versed in your spell
And no one else can tell,
For only you and I hear the music.

I want to sway in the length of your existence
My head nestled against your chest
And no matter the distance that separates
We continue the dance
While life goes on for everyone else
And no one else can tell,
For only you and I hear the music.
