Dance for hope

You live in a complicated world,
And unlike your feelings,
You don’t own it or control it.
Life has it’s music – a wild orchestra
With happenstance seemingly falling in and out of line;
Sometimes, it’s checkered tune is insufferable
And the passing of time may seem a miserable monotony.
So, maybe now you don’t like the music life is playing,
Perhaps it makes your heart heavy or your spirit low;
Your thoughts are confused and you are weary of brainstorming;
Really, I can understand.
Your gifts and dreams are screaming, but the world hasn’t noticed;
You need a break, but luck looks away again and again.
No need to feel lonely, I am your man.
Take my hand. Now, let’s listen to hope’s melody
Come along, if you’ll dance with me.

Your mind is a vast asset
Of priceless real estate –
You are richer than we’ll ever know.

There’s so much space, so much for hope!
I’d love to get in your head, let’s dance in your shoes,
Take my hand and come away.
The beating of the heart is the music of hope.
Close your eyes and open your mind,
Can’t you feel the music baby?
Come on! loose yourself, snap off the weight,
Find your wings and let’s take a flight.
There’s a silver lining in the sky –
My gift to you on this our date.
The world may not stand still to watch
Yet, let us this moment our happiness consummate
Everything else will have to wait
Come on my dear, dance for hope!
