ANGEL DANCE
ODE TO CAROL

Have you ever seen an Angel Dance? Gliding softly across the floor
An angel here on earth you say one we could all adore.

Dancing, spinning, angel pirouetting through the sky
Soaring, floating astonishingly, over the clouds you fly

What brought you here to earth to make us marvel so
As dancing through your daily world you amaze us as you go.

You danced into my life a whirlwind of beauty and grace
How could I be so lucky to gaze longingly upon your face.

You took my hand and then my heart and taught me how dance
We danced through joys and sorrows, we danced and danced and danced.

Could I have this dance for the rest of my life seemed an appropriate request
You smiled and said of course my dear, you only had to ask.

We danced across the years, decades now it’s true
Oh how we danced, me and my angelic you.

As others gaze upon your dance they wonder at your grace
How could such charm and elegance all be in just one place.

If it was only your dancing we might not gaze in awe
But it’s how you lived your life that impressed us most of all.

Gentleness, kindness, love in everything you do
Your example makes us better as we ask what would Carol do?

Your dancing days are ending here but it makes no never mind
As all who know you, still see you dancing in their minds.

How cruel to take you from us, we are just learning life’s dance
How sad for us on earth to know we’ve seen our last Angel Dance.

Now dance with the angels darling your dance on earth is through.
Dance on with the angels my love til I can dance once again with you.

(Ken Hoggard, July 24, 2018)
