Come What May

To dance another dance
Another twirl, another spin
Another dip, another bow
Another tale to be in.

To laugh another laugh
And make another smile
To share a funny joke
And feel free for a while.

To sing another song
Even if a dirge
To sing it all night long
Till a soul feels the purge.

Let the dreams be kept warm
And the fire warmer still
On the cold winter’s night
Where pain breaks the will.
