Dancing Together

Married 54 years,
we are
thinking of
all the dances
and various dance steps
we have learned
and continue to learn.
Offering
our observations
that
dancing together
is not
the old-fashioned
predictable,
box step.
Each day,
each moment, each year
provides different music
to dance to.
Sometimes,
there is a lovely
elegant waltz.
Beautiful music.
Other days
there is something familiar
but improvised.
Sometimes,
discordant notes
scream out
and
turning the volume down,
even silence
is the
healthiest way
to
remember
why you wanted to
dance together
at all.
We grow
and we change,
not always
at the same pace.
Persist,
with love,
find a new note.
Be patient,
improvise,
don’t give up.
Love is not a
Honeymoon.
Rejoice,
when it is.
Loving
is giving
the most
of yourself.
Often, it means
giving up
the parts of yourself
you  most protect.
Learn
to change
and grow.
That is
what each of us
expects of the other.
Make time
to BE
together.
Remember,
you choose
to commit
to each other.
It is
a Promise.
It is
worth it.
It is not
always.
Easy.
All the best.
Smile
and embrace.
