POEM: If I Could Dance…


I’m not a man of action
I’ll never change the world
I’m just the one that watches
and sees the hidden truth

I like the way you dance
…the way you dance
……way you dance

The rhythm of your body
the timing of your mind
the subtle hints of more
hidden deep inside

I would watch as you dance
…watch as you dance
……as you dance

I want to wake every day
to you without perfume
only naked musky scent of us
lingering on our skin

If only I could dance with you
…would you take the chance
……take the chance

I’d like to be your music
the way you caress each note
turning lyric melody
into the breath of life

would you like to dance
…you like to dance
……like to dance

…with me?

    I really like this stanza, Merlin. The timing of your mind..

    I love the dancing in this piece and the rhythm of emotion, the dreaming, the longing.

    1. Thanks so much! That line “the timing of your mind” started the poem. Not sure where it came from – I was driving to work and this line popped into my brain “the rhythm of this music and the timing of your mind make me want to sway but it’s hard to waltz alone…”
      And the rest is what followed when I parked the car and wrote this on my cellphone…
      Still I want to use the “make me want to sway but it’s hard to waltz alone”
