Dancing Shoes

If I were to wear my dancing shoes,
would you dance with me?

Will your footsteps lead me
in the way I should go?

Will you hold my hand firmly
assuring me of your friendship?

Will you look into my eyes
instilling a sense of confidence into my soul?

Will you place your hand gently upon my back
to strengthen me when I’m feeling weak?

Will you let me spin when the tempo quickens
and I’m feeling joyful?

And when the music ends,
will you slowly release me
as I continue the dance in my heart,
while stepping into the dance of eternity?

If I were to wear my dancing shoes,
would you dance with me?


  1. Oh yes, of course HE would ... even if you don't wear your dancing shoes :)

  2. I agree with Gabriella. This post makes me think of a book I read about a month ago- The Divine Embrace by Ken Gire. It used the analogy of a dance in our relationship with Christ.
    Thanks for sharing this.

  3. Oh, but this is lovely. Your soft images and words flow with great ease. I too would like to dance into His presence. My hope and joy lies in His arms.
    Well written and well done.

    love Melanie-bhd

    I write more then Haiku.

  4. What a joyful thought it is, stepping into the dance of eternity.

  5. "Heart to heart, dear one."

    Anne, I didn't say that:) The Lord gives me these "words" when I least expect it. I never know when, I just popped on the computer to read your blog. Beautiful poem!

  6. Beautiful, my dear Anne! Lovely imagery, and I especially like the repetition of the final stanza.

    God bless you, dear one!
