Dancing is Life

-Inspired by Stephen King's 11/22/63

Unexpectedly, I see the newspaper
she's at least eighty now,
but still undeniably beautiful.
I will visit her;
maybe, somehow, she'll remember
how we danced.

I hoped that my love would remember me.
Heart to heart we have a connection,
our minds connected
Love never dies.

To travel back in time again to save her,
it would do no good, for
the past is stubborn.

So I stay where, in this time
the Land of Now
the Land of After
hoping she survived the cancer 
without my interference.

So here we are dancing again; 
She remembers but it's a faint memory,
like a dream; she recognizes me
and for a minute its all the same
how we danced.

The past is stubborn,
but right now
that's okay
because I have my love again.

-Caroline Youngless
