Life’s Dance

Some days I want nothing more
Than to dance in the rain
With gay abandon.

To know that I am free
Just to be.

Some days I want nothing more
Than to dance in the arms
Of a lover.

To know that my lover
Wants just me.

Some days I want nothing more
Than to dance whilst I cradle
An infant.

To know that that baby
Needs just me.

Some days I want nothing more
Than be told
The dance steps.

To know that if I dance right
The world will see.

But some days I want nothing more
Than to stop the
Dancing.

I know the world is better
Without me.

    Some days I want nothing more
    than to be
    understood

    To know I’m not alone
    in my pain

  2. I have to say Pooky I cannot agree with your last line. The world would be bereft without you. Hope you are ok today.

    I know this dance. All so very well. And the ending – I get. But I can go on dancing somewhere far away – no one will know me and no one will miss me. I will still dance.
