If I was a Ballerina

If I was a ballerina
I would leap in your arms
While you stand like a King
I would twirl with grace
Gentle to soft melody
I would be like a swan
Moving quietly
If I was a ballerina
Each dance would
be meaningful to you—only
If I was a ballerina,
For now I will pretend
I am yours
I am your
Royal Black ballerina.
