I’m being chased by a thief,
hanging at the edges of my life,
waiting to steal from me
In the dark of night I feel it
breathing close to me
waiting for the day it will overcome me.
But not today,
today I am dancing for all I am worth,
Leaping and twirling with all that I am
To keep the monster at bay,
And living in gratitude for my life this day.
And carefully guarding in my heart
that that ‘day of the thief’
