Let Us Simply Dance - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

When the day is tainted with sorrow
When the shadow of death walks in
When the notes of would-have-beens
Fill the mind with some regrets,
Please stand up anyway and join the dance.

Listen to the music of joy and hope
Make your feet and body move
Smile at the camera man
Fill the air with the aroma of thanksgiving
For the days that have been lived.

Keep on dancing
Until the music ends
You know that music and our dance
Are in symphony with beginning and end.
