Her Lover

As their last note dies

Her lover falls to the ground

Her world goes gray

And her heart begins to pound

The other couples dance on

Oblivious to her pain

The others twirl round and round

And her heart, she feels it break

Her lover begins to fade

From this dance that we call life

And she begs, and pleads, and cries to God

To let him live this night

But the darkness gives way to dawn's rosy glow

And her lover, still he sleeps

Her hope it dies

And she wanders why

Her lover she can't keep
