The Jig

Remind me how this goes
This dance and these steps
You’re thankful for the time
Yet sad to see it go
It’s the dance of freedom
The dance dedicated to new things
The dance attributed to new beginnings
So explain to me how it goes
Because my heart wants to get up and soar
But I can’t help but hold back just a bit more
Maybe I have this need to be the last one standing
To be the strong one
To watch everyone else walk out that door
And then maybe in the shadow of the light that’s left
I’ll get up and dance
Do the jig without the steps
And trust that it’s not the steps that matter
But the dance itself that counts
