The Dance of Life


The dance of life

is the spirit,

That resonates

Within us,

In each moment

Of our existence,

It dances,

To each heartbeat,

With every breath,

And every sigh,

With each tear,

That falls,

When lost has come,

To steal our joy,


The spirit within us,

Sees a rainbow,

On the other side,

Of each lost dream,

Our quenchless,


Is ever there,

To guide us,

To the future joy,

We shall know.
