she danced for you

at christmas when her eyes were blue
I saw her dancing just for you
and as the clouds flew overhead
I recollected what was said
the storm of words the sea of lies
that passed before our anguished eyes
oh mother how those days were lost
to our despair and to our cost
the miracles that we were sure
would even up the wayward score
they never came so much is true
but in the end she danced for you

    I have a very definite interpretation of this poem and I think it’s terrific. I can see the dancing and I can see how it ends..if only time could be turned back..the ending might never have come…

    • Thank you 😀 As I see it, no matter what happens, she will be there to dance for you… 😀

        “But in the end she danced for you”…you know me..I already have a 12 page story in my head on this one! 😀

        • Like was she, at some point, involved with the narrator, or did he wish she had been? 😀

            Nope, the narrator is her child. He and his sister witnessed the scene and is reminded of it and how it ended every Christmas..and he wishes, for one last time..he could see his mother dancing for his father..before the fighting that ended it all..

            • Ah, I see. I just used “oh mother” as an exclamation, and it never struck me that it would be read otherwise 😆
