Last Dance - Poem by Joe Howell

if we could but hear the music
dance that last time again
let me sway into your mind
and hold you with my hand

we could dance till dawn
feet touching the floor
rainbows leaping around us
we would never close the door

if we could hear the music
let it play just for us
everyone looking, watching
us moving in angel's dust

the years have came between us
left it's crippling hold
sunshine always reminds me
my first love, so bold
