The Little Girl Dances

In through my window the tinkling sound drifts
into the dimness of the room.
I peer out and see
the sweetest little girl dancing and laughing
in the bright sunshine
her curls fly around her pink flushed face…
suddenly she stops…
sees me watching her…..
with cocked head she picks up her hand
to shyly wave…then suddenly she breaks into
laughter and gives me the most brilliant smile.
She runs to me
stops at me feet and looks up.
With sweet imploring eyes she invites me to join her
in the sunshine…
I take her hand and she runs…pulls me out of the
gloom
to twirl and spin and dance…
Slowly…I move…
then increasingly pick up speed…her mood
contagious…
I laugh with her…my laughter becomes her
laughter…
My dance…her dance
Then suddenly…I become her
That joyful sweet girl…
She was me all the time
I got lost and she found me…
Dear sweet little girl…
live in me…
Stay alive in me…
Never let me go…
