Tango Words

Moon Dance 2

Though memories may warm the years
beyond brief passion’s span
and we may conjure wild dreams
from the merest glance
it seems this dance
is with the clouded moon.

Yet when, too soon, you leave
and other memories fade
I’ll hold to this,
love recognised and made
touches all who let it,
and in your absence
speaks from the still air
that closes on your passing.
