(Written back in my single days and trying to figure it all out)
I Danced For You
After a treacherous winter, I welcomed the spring.
I had grown in wisdom and my heart began to sing.
My beauty came from within and I accepted it as true.
God had convinced me my desire would ensue.
I tried to show my beauty, I danced for you.
I showed you pieces of my soul but you did not pursue.
I gathered my dress in shame,
Running away and you never called out my name
I showed my talents, my heart, my splendor,
You didn’t notice. I took off my dress of beauty and put on my armor.
One day, I will dance again – and maybe your eyes will see,
All of the beauty hoping to emerge from inside of me.
