Dancing Alone with You
I dance with you when I’m alone
Your thigh presses against mine
And leads me in a waltz of wonder,
Your rhythm captures my heart
And changes its beat to fervor.
When I am in your dreamy arms
The secrets of your eyes fling open
And show me how to follow
The steps of your dance
And the runes of your story.
As I dance in my armchair,
Your soul calls to me from a river
I step into your pools of love
Swim in the currents of your spirit
And your waves lift me into the sky.
I soar on a crest of astonishment
You become my wide-winged bird
Lift me to the tips of trees
Where I’ve never been
E’en though I dance with you
When I’m alone.
