Letting You Lead Me

God (Inspired by)

You take my hand;
at first, I am unable
to follow your lead.


My feet are clumsy;
I'm trying not
to step on your toes.


You tell me to just
move with you,
drown in the melody.


I close my eyes,
match your pace
while the music consumes me.


I listen to the lyrics
and realize this song
was the one you wrote for me.


I'm learning to sway with you,
letting my heart
beat with yours.


Then you spin me around,
and although I'm afraid,
I know you won't let me go.


I twirl and you smile,
and I begin to understand
why you asked me to dance.
