Dancing For Love - Poem by Linda Marie Van Tassell

From rooms of grandeur, we ran into this sphere.
We came from out the shadows which led us here.
To where the feet of the upper class have never set,
I come wearing costly gown and sparkling amulet.

Yet, I am more at home here, as delighted as I can be.
A bloom in the breath of happiness, so glad to be free.
For a moment, I have escaped the riches that bind;
and it seems a heaven to me to leave them behind.

Can we stay forever? Can we always dance like this?
Can we dance for love, dance for life, dance for bliss?
You are such a joy, my love, laughter spinning round the room.
Each circle a rhapsody, a whirl of sweet perfume.

Ecstasy pours into me, such bright light of gladness.
It chases away the gloomy depths of pain and sadness.
My thoughts are dancing, alive, more vibrant with turns.
The love, the laughter, the dreams and wishes, each sojourns.

My heart, my soul, my mind, all passions are inflamed.
I have nothing to fear, nothing to hide, and cannot be shamed.
You give motion to the still heart that yearns to play.
Spirit rising like an angel, you give wings to lift away.

You spin me around, fast, faster, swift and wild.
Never have I been happier, never more have I smiled.
The stars I see, beautiful light, are not of the skies.
Yet, flash from heaven born within the blueness of your eyes.

Heaven and earth, you and I, two stars at last have crossed.
Glimpse of heaven, dancing angel, holding the love I'd lost.
That smile! The dazzling vision that should be sin.
O! It brings such pleasure that comforts me within.

You spin me around, fast, faster, swift and wild.
Never have I been happier, never more have I smiled.
Can we stay forever? Can we always dance like this?
Can we dance for love, dance for life, dance for bliss?

Can we always dance like this?
