Mantas Last Dance

One word. Beautiful.


If I could stay just for a minute more
Then I could say all the things I’ve been saving up for
Never enough time in the day & moments like this
come a moment too late

And, there’s so many things that I don’t understand
And I’m standing in line with my open hand
Waiting for some explanation
Something to hold onto
And the minutes of the day turn to hours of the week
And time’s slippin’ away & we don’t hardly speak
And I’m feeling so lost deep in my soul…

  1. Can’t imagine dancing with a Manta……mezmerizing video and song. Beautiful.


  2. Beautiful and tear-inducing. The imagery and the music is heartbreakingly lovely. Going to find some tissues.

    If we paid heed to Richard Branson’s message at the end, we might even want to do more than weep.. Thanks so much for this, yes it is, heartbreakingly beautiful.


  4. Achingly beautiful….


  5. Yes, nothing else to say, except… beautiful. Thanks David, for starting my morning off with such sweetness. 🙂


  6. Yes, beautiful.


  7. When I was looking for a mermaid video to go with a poem a while back, I missed this one!! It’s lovely! The song as well! She must be a real mermaid! 😉


  8. How do they DO that?


  9. That was fascinating, David!!
