Blessed - Poem by Cecil (C.J.) Krieger

When night
Filled our home with darkness
And moonlight danced
Through the frosty winter windows
I would watch you
Dancing to yesterdays music
Wearing nothing more
Than a silk scarf
That covered a joyful smile
And enchanting eyes

These days the winter nights
Still fill our house with moonlight
And though I still watch you
Dancing to a time gone by
We have grown older
While the light of the moon
kindly softens the lines
That have grown upon our faces

These days all that I can see
In the quiet of the night
Is a young woman
Who loves to dance
With nothing more
Than a silk scarf
A joyful smile
And enchanting eyes
A young woman who dances
For no one but me

I am blessed
