The Dance Everlasting

The Dance Everlasting

O’ my love, you are beautiful
Gliding through the darkness
Soft, violet eyes veiled in sorrow
Ruby, red lips pouting tenderly
Against milky, white flesh
Floating on wisps of ivory tulle
Ebony tresses gathering twilight
You dance the dance everlasting
As your dreams drift about
And I gather them in my pockets
As golden coins for the morrow
When I shall pay the toll
To cross that forlorn river
Where true love awaits
Beyond all mortal flesh
Far past this earthly realm
There, we shall dance in sunlight
An everlasting dance
O’ my love, you are beautiful
I save these tears for you
For precious was your heart
And worthy is my devotion
In alabaster jars
Each tiny drop I save
To sprinkle on the roses
I lay beside your grave
