as a dancer

they remember you

as a dancer

great energy on the dancefloor

& I remember you coming to see us

a thing you’d not done

for a long long time

talking of sorting loose ends

putting a new tomorrow in place

& I read somewhere

the idea that people

in the last six months of their lives

work to create sense

seek out old friends

putting everything in order

& tho’ I did not see it then

I see it now

you didn’t know

your time was coming

the building bridges making amends

was your own sweet way

of saying au’voir

until we meet again
