Come closer, dearest…come on.
Do you see that little fire dancing
Gaily in the dark?
Brave against the wind’s soft music
Clay lamp in the garden? It’s pretty, isn’t it?
I see the gentle
Light wash over your black hair, deep eyes, your loving heart…
Splendid for a mere minute.
Swaying young ephemeral hips in a blazing gown, chest heaves,
Fiery hair flying free
Flowing higher, glowing
fingertips brush the air-On every tree a reflection painted, splashed with light.
Little dancer in the dark,
Warm forever my heart…
Ignite a blaze beneath my skin, gently touch
This soul beneath.
Banish away my faults, my tears, be the single light in my long night-
Embrace me my darling, my
Daring dancer in the dark.
Impermanent as pure flame.
An everlasting memory to us both.
