A rewrite of an earlier poem

Dance of the Young


 


Looking back when laughter came easy


And worries were pages to turn


Childhood magic guided my footsteps


Each day was a memory learned.


Now my thoughts are caught in a whirlwind


And my dreams are songs unsung,


I wonder if Iíll ever come up again


To dance the dance of the young.



A sapphire sky, a whispering passion


A daisy-fresh garland encircling my heart.


I thought you and I


Were meshed in a fabric


That could never be torn apart.


But now my sky is muddled with sadness


 with gray clouds setting high


And I wonder if Iíll ever rise up again


To dance my dreams gone by.


 


Lessons of old are stitched in my heart


Colorful threads intertwined.


Time will soon recreate patterns


A quiltís recycling of old to new.


Lively steps tapping out a long-lost rhythm


Reclaiming my dance


Of my memories of you.

Very well written!

Melancholy and wise...nostalgia and and a touch of hope...that 'you' brings forth sorrow.

Well expressed loss of innocence, Laurie
