In regressing here this evening
Thinking over days gone by
Living life with dignity
Taking stress in stride
I've found that unimportant things
Were given up to chance
For details are a memory
I settled for a slow dance
To taste the heady passions
To smell the blooming flowers
To climb a tree when I chose
Get soaked in April showers
To take a trip to Europe
Having never left my home
With a Gypsy spirit antsy
My curiousity roamed
I met the rich and famous
I felt the desert air
I tripped the light fantastic
Because I have no fear
In case you might be wondering
Why I took such chance
Those details now are memoriea
As I opted for a slow dance.

Memories can turn to a dance and even more so those memories within a slow dance can place one within numerous memories more...

Done that, too...
not yet with you.
The slower the dance,
Faster hearts prance

Your poem is a lovely thing...

As I get older the more I appreciate the beauty and the connection of the slow waltz. It is passion joined to music what better way to show love.

And who doesn't love a slow dance, soft music, dim lights and that lazy slide on the dance floor. Great as usual. Victor

Excellent flow and message Belle. And always better a slow dance than a wheelchair. Blessings and Light to you dear friend ...
