With You I Dance

With you I dance

as I dance with no other

for in you I find myself

and finding myself, find you again.


And you and I

and I and thee

dance on in joy and astonishment,

so familiar; so new,

such a wondrous voyage of discovery.


We look into each other’s eyes

an endless row of mirrored images,

and clasp our hands in delight

and hold each other so tenderly, so strongly.

We sway to the music of love,

back and forth, and back again,

and again, and again, and again, and again.


Then, dawn finds us dancing on alone.

The waiters have cleared off the tables,

the musicians have packed up their instruments

and gone home.

Yet we dance on…

until, exhausted but undaunted

we collapse on the floor

panting and gasping

…and roaring with laughter
