THE DANCE OF ILLUSIONS

The dance begins

The stage lights dim

As the partners crowd the floor

The music filters through the air.

Their hands touch

Their eyes meet

The music plays

As they step into place

Alone…you stand

Watching the magical charade

Looking for you partner

The partner of your dreams.

The music whispers through the air

While all play the game

Of star crossed lovers

Playing in the moonlight

Along he comes

Walking your way

Offering his hand

So you can join the game

Your eyes meet his

He takes you in his arms

The feeling of illusions

Of star-crossed love begins

The music plays on

Carrying you away

To a dream world

Far far far away.

The music slows as you turn

Passing through the wind

Suddenly your alone

Watching the dance of illusions

Pass you by...
