dancing with ghosts

 I danced with the ghosts of yesterday
to a long forgotten tune
Upon the bridge of time we swayed
where melodies are strewn

Embracing the haunting   rhapsody
of cherished days gone by
as we waltzed  to the melody 
before we said  goodbye

 When the music played no more
And  no melody was left  to hear
They still moved across the floor
until they disappeared  

I  will dance forevermore
When  their   favorite song is played
as I    move  across the floor
with the ghosts of yesterday
