Dancing In The Stars

Your poet for a while

In mutual love and trust,

I hope I served

Our years together well.

A joy it was,

Completed, yes,

And now it’s time,

It’s time now,

Time to vanish in the light.


Don’t worry ‘bout me,

A smile, a sigh,

I’m fine, all’s well —

Just like a song,

In the air and gone,

Sailing through the skies,

Dancing in the stars.


Talk to the moon at night;

Tell it everything you feel,

And seal it with a kiss.

Send your whisper-cries to me

On silver moonbeams,

I will hear you singing.


I lived and loved

The best I could for you.

No warrior or genius,

All I had were heartsongs;

Sometimes

Only you stood by

To see or hear or care

Enough to know me;

Your love’s shining strength

Brought life in me alive,

Made every struggle joyous,

Always you were there —

The radiant musiclight

Inside the songs

That riverflowed

Through both of us,

Not just me alone.


Recall

The trails we walked,

Woods and streams,

The melodies, laughter, tears.

Remember briefly,

Do not dwell,

Then kiss our years goodbye,

Wipe your eyes

And live again,

Yes, come to care again,

And love anew.


Don’t worry ‘bout me,

A smile, a sigh,

I’m fine, all’s well —

Just like a song,

In the air and gone

Sailing through the skies,

Dancing in the stars.
