I Long to dance
I long to dance on a moonlit night
with an Angel fair with a step so light
to hold her close in my warm embrace
to gaze upon that perfect face.
I long to dance when the sun does rise
To gaze into those dark brown eyes
in silhouette her perfect form
graces my presence in the light of dawn.
I long to dance on a warm summer day
In forest glades where butterflies play
when happiness lives and cares are few
and a kiss from my Angel is a dream come true.
I long to dance on long winters nights
By the light of the fire and soft candle lights
to whisper my love, share my fears
to laugh and cry to savior the years.
I long to dance back into the past
To meet a girl sad and down cast
To offer my heart and my hand to dance
to hold her close to take a chance.
I dream of the dance that never was
I rail against the natural laws
But time is fickle I know its true
Some time I know I’ll dance with you.
