A Dance


With the boldness of a lion,
he approached her.
With a tap on her shoulder and a smile,
he proceeded to ask her to dance.

He couldn’t have known,
his valor that night would help heal
her lingering wounds.

That dance
and the connection formed thereafter,
reignited a flame inside of her.
A flame that used to burn so bright.
He brought back her fire, her light.

His gallantry was not by mistake.
A by-chance encounter he could
not forsake.

The dance of two who genuinely vibe.

A dance of two,
whose connection is true.
