Suspended In Time

She lives in the past, in her own little world

Untouched by concerns of the present

Her skin is wrinkled, her hair is gray

But that's not the reflection she sees in the mirror

She sees a woman, still young and beautiful

Unchanged by the passage of time

Suspended forever in a long lost era

She dances to music that only she hears

And with a partner that only she sees

None know what happened to freeze her in time

And she's not likely ever to tell

So she lives her days lost in her fantasies

Content in a way few of us ever are

Forever held in the arms of her love

As they dance the time away
