The Grey Matters

The Tap Dance

The Tap Dance

By Melinda Williams


I smile, smile, smile

Laugh, smile, laugh again


It’s for you, can’t you tell?

My audience

My friends?


I sing, sing, sing

Back pedal, laugh, forward motion, smile

Strum that tune that says

I’m great


Please, don’t worry about me



I’m happy for you

I’m happy

Happy happy happy


The motions get harder to do

But I’m practicing

Do you want me to clap?


I smile, smile

Cry a little, smile

Wipe my tear, you can never tell





Did you like it?
