Poem: When We Dance

Written by empressjournee

You made my eyes, body, and the sky smile,

And nothing took me by surprise; for you were there by my side:

When we dance; our dance was in sync, unforgettable;

as we dance to various, lover’s rock songs:

When we dance, it was, a different kind, of movement;

Our dance mend hearts, bring hope, joy, new, young love— join as one:

Yes, when we dance, we forgot our sorrows; We were the songs,

of Africa, the Caribbean, that made hearts smile,

It was a great and beautiful romance!

About the author


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
