An Instant

This refers to an actual event that occurred more than 40 years ago.

I only saw her for an instant
there above me, in the lighted windows
as the bus rolled down the dark street
with its load of weary strangers
and me, as weary as the rest

An angel in blue, dancing on her toes at the barre
in a world free of the ugliness and despair
the bitter days, the lonely nights
that seemed to be all there was of mine

And I wanted to be there with her
to thank her for her gifts
the beauty of her dancing
a reason to go on
