Echoes Waltz

And once again, we dance this waltz,
Of broken hearts and empty steps.
With tearful joys that silence fills,
Twirling round till one does falter.

Now, like then, and always have,
I take the lead and spin you round.
I soothe your pain with no remorse,
You light my day with simple smile.

No lows, but highs, we dance the night,
Our giggled joys that echoes halls,
That flit away the shades of past,
Ghosts of shattered hearts at rest.

And as our laughter does reach its peak,
Your shade of love does steal you back.
And as you two do dance away,
I beg and plead for you to stay.

Broken… lost… I walk away,
To empty groves of lovers lost.
I weep upon the broken husks,
The love I gave, scared and spurned.

And in the silver light of moon,
I find you crying in the gloom.
I slowly bow, as you do curtsy,
And once again, we dance this waltz.
