A Dancers Dream

I close my eyes to see the stars
And dream on the dreary days
That fades the smiles and wipes a way
The gleam of hope and shot for joy
A single hand my heart employs
To raise among the pain and tears
And sway like grass in prairie fields
I dance for peace and fight for joy
And once again my heart employs
My hand to rise and say I’m free
To jump and swirl and make a leap
Into the sea where all is lost
Where we stand perfect, not a flaw
To raise our head and gaze upon
A dreary sky and stars that draw
A smile upon a dancers face
That lays her precious head with grace
And dances where the eyes can’t see
The beauty of a dancers dream
