I’m a disappointment–to my family.
They wanted me to follow in their footsteps,
A career in medicine, curing the sick.
But, I took my own path, a hard and competitive path,
Where my passion lies.
Graceful, elegant, poised,
Ballet is my life, my dream,
But when I meet him,
Plié, Passé, and Relevé
Are quickly shadowed by the man
Who intercepts my heart.
Suddenly, I’m thinking about touchdowns,
There’s so much more to River Kelley
Than all his fans realize.
He’s strong, but sensitive.
Powerful, but delicate.
Determined, but giving.
Now, I’m questioning everything.
She may be a saint,
But she’s no angel in bed,
And it feels like she’s been sent from Heaven.
She’s the answer to my every prayer,
The woman who could dance into my fantasies,
And make all of my dreams come true.
But when my family jeopardizes our future,
I have to let her go,
Let her achieve her goals.
Let her fly,
Like the angel she is.
If only, I could find a way to have both…
