To Lightly Dance

by Alicia Beckwith


Time is chasing after us

With fast, furious pace

Setting down the ‘magic’

Each of us must face

Making a hole in the heart

That time cannot erase.


We must grasp the chance

So one may lightly dance

With one who matters much

And hold the ‘magic’ with tender touch

So when the time draws nigh,

Go gently with wings on high

To that final resting place

Where we shall see His face.
