Echoed past- so bright
Oh how I danced across the rapturous light
Past, light, a flight of that wonderful night
As the pieces fell from the sky
To the ground- the puzzle of life assembled itself
-in a most curious way
I watched, ever enthralled.
So whole, so consuming, permeating, purging
As I watched the wounds fade to scars
As I danced across the sands of time
Like angel wings beneath my feet.
Edging back to a way to see my past change
Unravel the chains so I don't see life the same
Gazing, swooning, I am swept away
Into the most forgiving dreams, to find this a reality.
Stellar shadows now bathed in the velvet light
As I watched my past take on a new life
Smiling, I'm ever aware they see through
this masqueraded pantomime
The same child deep inside
Without the burden, younger, something new, so alive.
And still dancing, lost in the dizzying anthem
Of resolution- the peace it becomes.
As the death of seasons makes its final cry
We danced in honor of it
With an epitaph of fading ink
Not a tear could be summoned
As the single white Amaranth is lain on the grave
Left a dream, a memory to part with
That childish giggle that carries on in the night
