Watching from the sidelines
as couples glide across the floor
with the beat of the music
and the rhythm of their souls.

Moments like these drag you from the depths of my heart
and into my thoughts.
The presence of your memory
rips me from the inside
while I remember…and remember.

Your smile with each turn,
the aroma of your sweat,
the grace of your hand,
and the movement of your body
as we danced each song together.

The lyrics move through my soul
and remind me of a time when
you and I used this dance
to express ourselves,
and our love.

Now, there is a constant battling sensation
of longing and desire
wrapped with the truth that…
you are never going to be a part of it again.

All I can say is…
I still miss you
and our dance.
