In darkness
And in light
Hushed whispers
In a dark, dark night

In soft murky shadows
Sometimes a faint glow
Is enough, can be
Enough

Uneasy alliances
Precarious and
Out of balance
I feel clumsy
Sure I will falter
Stumble
Fall

A tightrope dancer
With a softly glowing heart
And luminous eyes

Takes one step
Then another
Graceful
Trusting
Believing

I watch
We all watch
Holding our breaths
Just a little
Or a lot

She walks this walk
Dances this dance
Looks me in the eye
Gives me a sly wink

And I know

She dances for me
She dances
In my place, for me

And I know

Because 
She lives in me
Dances in me

I will not fall
