Dancing on the thin air of life,

running circles around myself.

Losing track of space and time,

because of sights, sounds, and smells.

Laughing in the face of fear.

Smiling in spite of it all.

Knowing that you're always here,

to catch me if i fall.

Enveloping myself in evening,

drinking in the cool of nite.

Living in a world of freedom,

so that i can sleep alright.

Getting by on the skin of my teeth,

but getting by all the same.

Life goes on until you die,

no matter how things change.
