I'll Cling To This Comfort

by LisaMay

Dance me a daydream
while birds chime dawn.
Nimble, we’ll leap limber-legged
to pirouette in pleasure
when you twirl your attention 
then swivel with bliss.

Kiss me with wind-song
while spinning your sunshine
so light on our feet.
I’ll cling to this comfort as
you glide, golden-glowing, 
to halo my heart.

We’ll purr across stones as
we waltz away worries when
sunny days turn to stars.
In the belonging of love-light
we’ll dawdle through dusk
in a whirl of our own.
Night’s heartbeat shelters;
through dreaming moonbeams
we’ll weave restful rhythms
that permeate peace.
Come, muffle these bones as 
we drift through our daze.

Will you slipper my shuffle 
when our footsteps falter
to wander, slow-moving, in snow?
Just hold me and tell me 
we soared like the angels,
then we can creak Home to our rest.
