What is a temple dancer?

Video recording by Umang Kumar “CC” to get the captions for this piece 😉

What is a temple dancer
without a temple?
Without blessing?
Without prayers?
Without love?
Without her knees?

I make a temple right here around me
I seek blessing for these knees
I pray the love in me finds the love in thee

What is a temple dancer?
I am a temple dancer

I dance today I dance now
For thee
