A Beat Of My Own


I tried to match
my steps to yours
sway to the same music
I was always too slow
or a touch too fast
When you led
I didn’t follow
You didn’t let me
set the pace
Mismatched pieces
we were never
the perfect fit
It took so long
but I have learned
to let go
Now I swing
to a beat
all my own
