I Think We Were Never Strangers Poem by Patti Masterman

I Think We Were Never Strangers

Rating: 5.0

I think we were never strangers-
I think we were always friends;
Standing shyly across the room
Just waiting- to begin/

I think I dropped a curtsy
I think you kissed my hand-
And then we started in to dance
Accompanied by the band/

Men and women dancing
Is far older than the wheel;
Older than the glowing fire
Or the warmth that embers feel/

And we will go on dancing
Till they turn out the lights-
And we'll just go on whirling, whirling
Until the stars say goodnight/

I think we were never strangers;
For we met in each others dreams,
And reality stepped aside for once
In the playing firelight's gleam/
