If I could hold you one more time
and feel your dancing arms in mine.
If we could once more take the floor,
and move in music as before.
If we could just roll back the years
and lose our aches and pains and tears.
If we could swoop and turn and glide.
dipping and swaying on music's tide.
If I could clasp your body tight
and dance with you all through the night.
If just once more a waltz time beat
could take the music to our feet
And if a foxtrot's elegance
could once more our hearts entrance
If samba's throbbing gaiety
could make our limbs dance young and free.
If the tango full of love
could make our spirits soar above
the ravages of times decay;
then we could dance our grief away.
