THE DANCER
Lloyd Gray
8/15/20 - 11/11/06


Memories will never leave you
Now memories are all that I have
And I can still hear the music
As I waltzed 'cross the floor with my dad.

He taught me more than the box step
I learned life is only a song
You just move to the beat and the rhythm
Always dancing on feet that are strong.

But time can be very unforgiving
To the dancer who slowly grows old
Feet that were once young and nimble
Start to shuffle and move oh so slow.

Then one day they walk into Heaven
And are young as they were once before
So, Dad, save me a dance 'till I get there
Then we'll waltz across Heaven once more.

Two years and change (11-09-04) since my Father passed. Not a day goes by that I don't think of him.
