Ballroom Dancer

Her partner is gone 
all the love for him like an empty
ballroom with music playing 

but no one to twirl around the floor
a stranger offered his hand 
he was not as skilled as the one before 

but she accepted the chance to dance
while blood still coursed through her heart
grief for the past is such a waste of time

must take happiness while she can
dance one more time, 
let life in, let laughter fill the room 

let in joy for what is here now 
death will come again, but today
there is happiness to be found.
