Baxter Black: A dad always remembers dancing with his daughter

I danced with another woman tonight

My wife didn't seem to mind.

We took to the floor like a pair of swans

That fate forever entwined.

“We tested our two step, tried out a waltz and laughed when something went wrong!”

Leaving our wake through the dancers who flowed

Like notes in search of a song

We tested our two step, tried out a waltz

and laughed when something went wrong!

I led and she followed, trusting each step,

Spurred by the beat of the band

Like birds taking wing the very first time,

It helps…to hold someone's hand.

Although I had known this woman before

I'd thought of her as a child

But there on the dance floor, arm 'round her waist,

I found my heart was beguiled.

For her a window had opened. I was there,

I'm eternally glad.

The rest of my life I'll remember

The first night she danced with her dad. ❖
