As tho on ballet dancer's feet
I tread this now, cold world
Unsteady my gait and wary my eyes
As I progress along this path
Unchosen by me, called "Fate".
Questioning what lies ahead at each dawn...
And relinquishing myself to the dark at night.
I huddle within myself,
Afraid to venture into the light of love again
Afraid to listen to "our songs"...
For fear my tears will never cease!
So hard, my beloved, to live
Without your sure and steady heart,
beating in "sync" with mine,
On this, God's earth ~
Yet, knowing I must go on living, I take
One breath, followed by another ...
And then one more
Until my last breath is done...
I shall love you ...
Up 'til and beyond Eternity!
