I Will Dance With You: Romantic IMprov Rhyming Poem

October 8, 2013

When we’re old and gray,/
I will dance with you. /
Until the end of life’s day,/
I will dance with you./
When you feel like we’ve lost our way,/
I will dance with you./
When there’s nothing left to say,/
I will dance with you./
When you just want to sway,/
I will dance with you.

I will dance with you/
Like we did today./
And you will laugh,/
Still,/
Again,/
And thrill,
Again,/
As I dance with you.
