Hey Babe, You Still Rock

When nobody is looking
I kick off my shoes.
Turn up that volume
And swing back the years.
I’m back on the dance floor!

One beat after another
My stubborn limbs
Awkwardly break out.
Unbutton and swing.

The air thumps loudly
Electrifies with rhythm.
My heart sings with fun,
Lost in the footsteps
Of a forgotten time.

After a while reality hits.
Doubled up with cramp,
And breathlessly panting
I nevertheless always
Triumphantly announce

“Hey Babe, you still rock!”
