Tango Words

To an Endless Song


“Hold me close
and close my eyes
and tell me what the world is like,”
she said.

“I only know my world,” he said,
“But I will open my arms
for you to slip inside
for it may be enough right now
to keep you from the cold.”

“Life is long,” she said.
“But I may love you
for the length of this song.”
