This poem was inspired by a very warm and loving soul...May it bless each one who reads it as it flows across the page...

I love the dance
Of life --
I love the music
Of the soul --
I love the way
Things come about --
I truly love
The way life
Does unfold...

I love the dance
Of life
And doing things
In the right way
For there is a way
Of being proper
In things we do
And in words
We say...

I love the dance
Of life --
I love the sharing
And the bonding
Of my family --
There is a wonder
In the connection
Perfected by God
And seen in all
Humanity...

I love the dance
Of life
And togetherness
With those I love
For it is important
In this life of mine --
I love the dance
Of life
Where living by God's
Commandments
Is a given
Beneath softened pellets
Of rain or brilliant
Rays of sunshine...

I love to dance
And to share time
In the blissful movement
Expressed in visions
Of rhythmic form --
I love the dance
Of life
For it has been
With me since
I was born...

Now I am
Of the age
That the dance
Has found its
True design
And the dance
Now reveals to me
The depth of God's
Blessing in the sharing
Of earthly time...

So I will dance
The dance of life
And share myself
Each day
And when the dance
Is through
And I have returned
Home to rest
There I will kneel to pray
And share with God
My thanks
For being richly blessed...

Gains I have
Come to know --
Loss has visited
Me as well
And if I could
Live my life again
I would surely tell
I love the dance
Of life --
I love the prize
It brings
For it often
Is the very reason
That my feet
Spin and twirl
And my very soul
Does sing...

As I pray
I will remember
That I loved
The dance of life
And abundantly
I am blessed
For God in all His wonder
Danced with me
The best...

"The dance of life often reveals itself in flowing days, and the beauty of its form is revealed in our thoughts and ways".

Very creative thinking...and I loved the next to the last line..."For God in all His wonder, danced with me the best. Nice job.

Good use of repetition in the "I love the dance" usage.

Since dances are generally flowing and rhythmic, I wonder if you'd consider lengthening the short, choppy lines. Just an experiment you might want to try; it might better reflect the meaning of your poem.

Some beautiful imagery here.

This is a very nice poem.

I like the creative way this is put together. There is a little problem as the verses go along, but a great start.
