Poem - Made Right for a Time

Listening to swing dance music, especially the Big Band tunes, gets me feeling better when I’m down. I think of my past partners and of future encounters. The poem “Made Right For a Time” is really a set of lyrics about the magic balm of dancing with the right partner.

Made Right for a Time
Poem for Day 118 – 20150428

When I’m sad, down in the dumps,
dancing with you gets me back up.
My absent smile returns to me,
restored by one that I adore.
The balm of trumpets, lights down low.
You in my arms, what should there be?
It may be for a time far too short,
so I’ll take what I can with you.

We’ll dance, I’ll hold you close.
We’ll dance, life made right for a time.
We’ll dance, I’ll hold you close.
We’ll dance, life made right for a time.

We’ll spin out from time to time,
enough to show some modesty.
It’s all for show cause I want to be
tucked in feeling you close to me.
The band plays just fast enough
to keep us moving along in time,
but slow enough for us to find
close company we call divine.

We’ll dance, I’ll hold you close.
We’ll dance, life made right for a time.
We’ll dance, I’ll hold you close.
We’ll dance, life made right for a time.

See me grin, from ear to ear.
A happy partner with one so near,
connection made, like soul found,
also seeking harbor from life’s trials.
I’m no longer a sad sack one.
I’ve become entranced by a spell,
enraptured by a dance shared by two,
lights and music and most of all by you.

We’ll dance, I’ll hold you close.
We’ll dance, life made right for a time.
We’ll dance, life made right for a time.
We’ll dance, life made right for a time.
