Dance! Dance! Dance!

If I could have one moment to see your face again,

I’d memorize your tilted smile, the angle of your chin.

If I could have one moment to feel your touch again,

I’d always remember the aging texture of your skin.

If I could have one moment to speak with you once more,

I’d remember the sweetness of your voice to my very core.

If I could have one more moment to pray as oft before,

I’d remember how it felt as we prayed to our sweet Lord.

If I could have one more moment of laughter, joy and tears,

I’d remember all the times we shared down through the years.

If I could have one more moment to let you calm my fears,

I’d remember how your precious whisper fell upon my ears.

If I could have one more moment to stand in your embrace,

I’d remember your struggle and pain in life is now erased.

If I could have one more moment to sit with you in grace,

I’d remember how tears no longer rain down your face.

If I can have one more moment, I know where I want it to be,

On Heavenly shores, with Jesus our Lord, and a sweet, soft breeze.

If I can have one more moment, we’ll rest together on our knees

Bowing before the throne we’ll worship, together at Jesus’ feet.

 

I love you!  Dance, dance, dance!!
