Our love, a destiny, not by chance.
We love as one, God’s perfect dance.
Step by step, life’s rhythmed pace,
Ours souls in sync, ignite by grace.
Staccato the music, each step, each day,
In harmony and love our bodies sway.
Seconds fly, a year yet gone.
Still the dance goes on and on.
Dance with me ever, dip and twirl,
Past the moon and stars, and out of this world.
Source of Inspiration for God’s Perfect Dance
On the occasion of our 30th wedding anniversary, I awoke at 2:00 AM. Unable to resume sleeping, I stumbled to my computer and began to “pen” this poem. I wrote this as a gift to my husband, my hero, my champion, the one who has always encouraged me to reach higher.
Then on the occasion of our younger son’s wedding, a young, very talented minister friend of mine, David Luna, put this poem to music, composing it in a Baroque style for piano and flute. It was then sung by my friend and singer/composer, Brian Leeser, for my son’s wedding.
God’s Perfect Dance was featured in the Best Poems and Poets of 2003, and received the Editor’s Choice Award.
