She’ll be dancing

Forgive me for waiting so long to post something new.  And yes, it IS another poem.  Really.  I sincerely apologize.

But anyway, this scene has been playing in my mind a lot lately.  The scene of a girl dancing on water, in perfect joy despite her circumstances.  I sort of want to be like that.  I think everyone does.  We all want to be happy amid crisis.  And so, my poem.

 

Everyone said

She couldn’t believe

Everyone said

Her faith wouldn’t last

 

They’d seen it before

This was no exception

Her smile would fade

She would lose hope

 

“This happens,” they said

“She won’t survive”

 

But see her, there

Standing by the water

Looking at her reflection

 

When comes the rain

Drop by drop

She’ll take a step

Onto the blue

With that gleam in her eye

 

When comes the rain

Drop by drop

She’ll be dancing

Step by step

Dancing

Dancing on the sea

 

The rain is falling

Down

Down

She’s soaked

Soaked to the bone

 

But there it stops

She bids it halt

The rain

Won’t soak her heart

Her heart

 

When Satan reaches

For her soul

She’ll be dancing

When comes the rain

Drop by drop

She’ll be dancing

And dancing

Dancing

Dancing on the sea.
