The day limps on,
Laying waste to my dreams.

But you
Are a dream,
Dancing through the tempest,
Saving my life with every step.

How can I explain?
Would you understand?

The dancer heals all.
Boldly moving,
Catches me gently
As I drown.

I owe so much for your
Compassion,

Understanding,


Inspiration.

Life whirls me about in endless torment, endless pain.
But tonight, I smile at the darkness;
Smile and watch as the dancer glides by.

This is beautiful Prom. My favorite part is the very last line. Keep it up!
