I heard the music, as I was walking down the hallway, it was your music, the music you like to dance to
You tell me you don’t dance, the rap & R & B music gets your body moving
I could imagine what you would be doing, moving your head & shoulders, you move so smooth
I walked up to the backdoor, as I looked outside your back was to me, your hips were shaking in the way only you can move
I knew if you turned around you might stop, knowing I was watching you dance about
You are so aware of what you see as faults, you are of the belief your body is not a womans body, not curvy in the way you would like
As I watch I am all to aware of how much of a woman you are, your hips, your legs, your tiny waist, the way there is no mistaking from looking at you, you are all woman.
The music changed, a slower song, you put your arms up & moved like a wave
I started to walk towards you, you heard my steps, you turned & kept moving, slowly walking towards me
You gently took my hand, you know me so well, I love to dance, but only my myself, I am so aware of others perception of me
You changed the song, a slower love song, you took my arms & wrapped them around your waist, you had to reach up to put yours around my neck
You pulled me close, & laid your head on my chest, you closed your eyes, we started to moving, swaying to the music in our own world
I felt you relax as we moved, you let out the sigh of contentment, a sound you are still getting used to
You know I love you, for you, this is not something you are used to, many have seen the wrapping & tried to change you, make you theirs, to own you, too show you off
I see what’s within you, I appreciate the outside, the inside completes it all
As we dance I feel loved, I can feel your love, you pour it into me, I can feel the way you appreciate me.
I can feel the way you are grateful we found each other, for both of us, it was unexpected, it was reprieve we both needed to smile again
If anyone was watching, they would see a couple, slowly dancing, they would not know the emotion that passes through from one to another
I have often said to you, when you just appreciate the moment, slow it down, you are suddenly so much more aware of every emotion that passes from me to you
It’s like I dance to me, the emotions slowly work their way around my heart, & into yours
It is the most beautiful dance of all, it is not one you can see
The most powerful things you can not see, you feel with such strength
It fills you up, gives you the strength you need to believe in yourself, to know you are loved, you are not alone.
