Sometimes someone dances into your life
and twirls your heart around.
Each step you take together lights up your world.
The rhythm is captivating, the music inspiring.
Your senses are heightened as you each lead and follow.
Everything looks brighter, tastes better, and
optimism is in the air!
And, then, the music changes…
it is harsh, difficult to follow.
No matter how hard you try, you lose the beat.
Once again, your senses are heightened ~
not to the dance, but to the missteps.
There is a push-pull which
throws you off track, off balance.
Your instincts are whispering … something is wrong.
Nevertheless, you keep trying to get
back into step, on with the dance …
listening and waiting for that tantalizing rhythm
which made your heart race.
As the music fades into the distance,
your hands reluctantly let go.
In that moment, your spirit is dimmed
and each dancer is left with their own story.
Once more you begin to search, seeking a special someone
who will unexpectedly dance into your life.
Hoping that you will find a partner who is
moved by the music of your soul and
will twirl your heart around !

“Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting.
Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.” Rumi
