Couples Dance

Couples Dance
through fields of joy
in towers of worry
against steadfast walls
and in harmonious interludes.

Couples Dance
to be one
to aim for one’s dreams
tightly embracing one another
to reach a divine oneness.

Couples Dance
in deep sorrow
around lost dreams – at least they thought
over rapids of pain
and in the face of endings.

Couples Dance
in seas of tranquility
over mountains of hope
among fields of angels
and towards horizons of peace.

Couples Dance
holding hopes firmly
and fates held high
with committed hearts
while staring in each other’s soul.

Couples Dance their journey
because that is what couples do.

  1. The ups & downs of love beautifully captured in your poem. The highs sustain us through the lows. And the lows make the highs that much sweeter. It’s what we do. And it’s so worth the dance. Thank you for sharing another inspiration. Your writing sparkles. 💫
