Come now, please take my hand;
I’ve been waiting for so long.
The band is ready and they’re all in tune
Restless – ready to play our song.
Whatever shall they play for us
I know not what nor how the length
to concentrate on such arcane details
its not the “what” that is the strength
Neither do I know the roads that brought you here
to this dance floor, here, I see
I only know that here in deed you are
silently, waiting, only with me
perhaps, I will be so very much the klutz
and I’ll only dance upon your feet
I’ve never been one to be so graceful
others at this sort – are so much more so neat
but that is not the way the game is played
there are other dynamics at work
a higher hand, He guilds our moves
like a mechanic, he knows the torque.
And so with nervous breath and pursed lips therewith
I hold your hand so steady
you and I – let’s start this dance
I’ve waited, so very long – I’m ready….
