Dance Me

(After Leonard Cohen)

Dance me to an echo’s beat
A pulse of tests and time
Dance me to a gecko’s feet
Of sticky words and rhyme
 
            Dance me kindly
            Dance me blindly
            Dance me to the ends
 
                        Dance me lightly
                        Dance me flightly
                        Dance – forever friends
 
Dance me to a wicked wind
A swirl of leaves and dust
Dance me even though I’ve sinned
With angry words and lust
 
            Dance me badly
            Dance me madly
            Dance me to the ends
 
                        Dance me wildly
                        Dance me childly
                        Dance – forever friends
 
Dance me to a different tune
A rhythm soft and slow
Dance me to a waning moon
Of memories’ ebb and flow
 
            Dance me surely
            Dance me purely
            Dance me to the ends
 
                        Dance me sadly
                        Dance me gladly
                        Dance – forever friends
