(Poem) And the Beat Goes On…

A life once lived cannot be taken
Memories can be forgotten
But the notes, chords, and songs
The lives entwined in them
Moments inked across the music sheet
Are timeless
A life dancing to Ella Fitzgerald
Is still there
Manifested in a shuffle and softly sung lyrics
Or in a simple statement
Probably repeated throughout her life
With a simple smile she says
I want to dance.
