The element of chance

champagne2

There is an element of chance

In craving for that one last dance

The one that thrills anticipation

Yet flutters you with consternation

 

There is that element of a dream

Where it is not all that it may seem

Wonder consumes reality in its hours

Like heat condensed by a flash of showers

 

There is an element of magic around

Grace catches you without even a sound

Slowly spirals her sage incense in the air

You’re wise, cleansed, nothing left to fear

 

There is an element of fire in your eyes

There’ll be no more hesitation and empty sighs

The dawn breaks open sparkling rays of light

Bubbling celebrations will fill the dim of night

 

The element of chance I found waiting for me

Is the same one I’m hoping will set you free.
