Dancing couples enhanced my mood,
Lights dimmed and music subdued.
This man intrigued me – he sat alone
Rumours had him single and smart
Perhaps he’d consider a dance with me ~
He looked at me, I looked away
Doubt disappeared – I met his gaze
He smiled at me – I think I blushed
Was it possible – was he the one?
He rose from his chair and strolled my way
I sat quite still, frozen in time
Preoccupied with sweet fantasies –
With a princely bow he took my hand
His eyes spoke volumes; I rose to dance
A foretaste of our love and romance.
Daydreams mingled with our dance,
Nothing ever happens by chance.
We married young – knew nothing of life
We lived simply and loved each other
We knew we could dance without a doubt ~
We dreamed our dreams, I knew your heart
Through the years we dancedas one
We learned to commit – we cherished our love
To Dance with you – for a lifetime, no less!
We nurtured our dance and learnt new moves
From hip hop kids to break dance teens
discovered and danced every routine –
You showed me how to refine our dance
With true love – the order of each day
We progressed to classical ballet.
The sands of time continue to flow,
Neither age nor pain will end this dance.
We danced yesterday. We danced today
We’ll dance tomorrow, this dance of life
Bad years are few—but we took that chance –
Your true commitment never fails
because you dance with a patient heart
You love me the way I am – I know
Always have – right from our first dance!
In the stillness of the night, you hold me
For always – I want to dance with you
Devotion and love are ours – it’s true ~
A life time of memories stir from within
Our dance is still to the highest degree
Because I accepted – and you danced with me.
