Save the Last Dance


The dawn slowly arrives…
Slowly with bhairav
Majestic in its dignity
Slow yet graceful in poise…

The early riser greets the Ganges…
While the strains of ajaan…
Waft in from the distance…
While most of the rest sleep on…

I lie awake looking for words…
Searching the soul of the morning breeze…
Looking for someone to share this with…
Nervous…Afraid…Happy…Hopeful…

The wizard plays his tabla…
And, the guitar joins him…
While the flute gently caresses
And, the piano takes it all in…

And, I stand silent…
Watching you dance…
Beautiful…far away…but it matters not…
For I know, you will save the last dance for me.

Music in your words...
The last dance waits and then she asks.
"Shall we dance?"...
