There she was, graceful, sublime, petite. It was an excellent performance although the one it is dedicated to, he wasn't there...

The ballerina dances
Up above that stage
She wanders ever so aimlessly
But surely with undying grace

The ballerina dances
She owns the whole platform
The limelight is all hers now
As the main act she now performs

The ballerina dances
She moves around with confidence and poise
But something deep inside accumulates
Behind the music and the spectators' noise

The ballerina dances
Her smile is always as sweet
No one knows that within her
Melancholy does exist

For only him the danced was performed
But he wasn't there to sense
The message the ballerina tells him
That only the dance could inform
