Dance To Remember...

Dance with me...

Let the water fall down, washing away all of the distractions...all of the dust and sins and grievances we've known...

Dance with me, to a song only we can hear...

Dance with me, for one minute or for the rest of my life, only never stop holding me like this...like I might slip through your fingers if you relax your grip for a moment.

Dance with your eyes open, looking at me, seeing me as I am, hair dripping, no longer perfect, no masks to hide behind.

Dance, and hold me close, hearts beating in counterpoint to the raindrops on the ground...

Dance, and let me keep this moment, look back on it when the glaring sun is too hot, or the bitter cold wind shears through me, or when the storms rage...

let me remember this dance...when your hands find other things to hold, or when your eyes are looking elsewhere...let me remember the perfection of this rainy day when you held me, when we needed no music, no birds singing, no sunshine...nothing but each other....
