As a little girl I was not allowed to dance.
My mother and the church said it was a sin.
I often wondered about that for my heart wanted to dance.
Secretly I would twirl in the forest when no one was around
and dream of tutu's fluttering in the air.
So when I often say to dance
sometimes it is just a twirl of the heart.
Sometimes dance is a smile and a toe that wiggles.
Sometimes dance is the laughter of two friends sharing a story
Sometimes it is a full out dance to the music.
Movement to the music and the hearts song feels oh so good.
So today pump up that music and dance.

for you see my church now dances and I smile.
