Life's tango

Life's tango

She took Life in her arms and insisted He stood up with her
They whirled and twirled and set the floor on fire
On occasion, they hit some rough spots, but she paid them no heed;
she would have Life on her own terms and so she led the way

Life was a good companion to her
He yielded just enough for her to realize He had some of His own ideas
Initially, she would have none of it, insisting to dance to her own rhythm,
but gradually she learned to allow Life to take the lead and she danced more freely

The moment her step faltered came as a surprise, unexpected
She chose to ignore it, disregarding it as a temporary setback
Gradually those moments became more frequent and she panicked,
fearing that Life might let her go and find Himself another partner.

Her fears were in vain, Life held on tenaciously
and when she crossed over, she found Him waiting there in glory.
