I need you.

I need you to hold me.
I need you to love me.
I need you to kiss me.
I need you to tease me.
I need you to watch out for me.
I need you to tell me that it'll all be OK.
I need you here with me.


The Performance

The spotlight brightens
The music begins
I’m up on my toes
As I twirl and spin
I jump and I leap
From one side to another
Feeling just the music
Never any other
I raise up in point
Then down plie
Performing what I’ve practiced
For so long everyday
To dance is my dream
I can’t let it die
For when I do dance
I feel I can fly
The world can disappear
My troubles can cease
For just one moment
I am truly at peace.
