Gaye Stanley’s Poems
The Last Dance
I swirled across the floor with you,
As I looked into your eyes,
You were like a past lover,
Your face was full of lies.
Still the dance continued as we seemed
To dip and dive,
The rythmn got much faster,
I was starting to feel alive.
You motioned that we must slow down,
I caught my breath again,
Suddenly it was a salsa,
I was entering the Lion’s den.
Your face was full of fury,
That I could keep up with you.
So we cha cha chaed and ooh laa laad,
And finally I heard you spew,
"You think you are quite the dancer,
But you can’t keep up with Cancer",
And you smiled that awful smile.
I was your partner for this time,
But ,Cancer, it is a crime,
To know someone like you.
So you have had the very last dance,
You’ve had your very last chance,
To sweep me off my feet.
I will dance a solo, but you I can defeat.
Cancer, that was the last dance.
Always dance to your own rythmn. Cancer can be beaten and I am living proof.
