Shall We Dance

Shall We Dance

A Poem by Krista Gallant

She longed for the freedom of dance

Aligned universe presented a chance

Following the trail of music played

Frozen at the entrance she swayed


Drawn in by the softness of his tone

His style and passion scant known

Flushed with fever, shied by her glare

Her soul stabbed by his hungry stare


Their soft and warm love enduring

Vows of fidelity proclaimed, assuring

Treasures found in all life’s splendour

Sharing their journey’s paths together


With delicate hands he eases her pain

Pulling her in close as the pushes strain  

He touches her tears to his lips and prays

Newly deemed parents of twins this day


Watching life pass, children now grown

They again find themselves on their own

Partaking in all, leaving nothing undone

But sitting on the side-lines has now begun


Hearing the darkest disturbing news

Praying for mercy he hopes comes true

Cancer has ripened and won at last

The light she lived by is failing fast


Silent teardrops fall down her lax face

He takes her hand as her heart loses pace

“Rest well my love” he whispers so near

As her last breath escapes he sheds a tear


Gazing beyond the busy streets, he cries

Looking to heavens where his dearest flies

He utters, “We will be together again soon”

Spending eternity dancing amid stars and moon
