dancing with ghosts

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

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

 When the music played no more
And  no  tune  was left  to hear
Ghostly shadows  moved across the floor
until they disappeared  

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