Consummate Dancer

I once told you I loved you

I really wasn't sure

That's where I started

With a simple lie, at your door


I stumbled, You swayed

You swayed around in answer 

At times, my love

O Consummate Dancer


You left me breathless

Shorn of pretence

And the music,... paused,

in awed silence


B'twixt the suitors that sought your glance

Fool that I was, with my head, I danced

With senses that thrilled, at your smiles

Those first ten thousand miles


For every step I complicated

Your's simply stayed divine

Till I moved to the beat of my heart

Knowing we'd be fine


By then I'd spent lifetimes 

In your arms and in your eyes

When only a moment

Was enough to realise 


That when You tell me You love me

You really are so sure

And that's what keeps me forever Dancing at your door.
