Dance With My Father

Back when I was a child
Before life removed all the innocence
My father would lift me high
And dance with my mother and me and then
Spend me around till I fell asleep
Then up the stairs he would carry me
And I knew for sure I was loved

If I could get another chance
Another walk, another dance with him
I'd play a song that would never ever end
How I'd love love love to dance with my father again

When I and my mother would disagree
To get my way I would run from her to him
He'd make me laugh just to comfort me
Then finally make me do just what my momma said
Later that night, when I was asleep
He left a dollar under my sheet
Never dreamed that he would be gone from me

If I could steal
One final glance
One final step
One final dance with him
I'd play a song that would never ever end
Cause I'd love love love to dance with my father again

Sometimes I'd listen outside her door
I'd hear how my mother cried for him
I'd pray for her even more than me

I know I'm praying for much too much
But could you send back the only man she loved
I know you don't do it usually
But dear Lord she' s dying to dance with my father again

Every night I fall asleep
And this is all I ever dream

Dedicating to my dad who was always there with his own love towards me. When the whole world doesn't go the way I am heading, you are the only person who always saying the most comforting words. Telling me the way I am heading is what I wanted for my life. You were right that in many ways that bringing me up to be the man I am. We can't change the world but we can change ourselves. Things that I have done was from my heart and I have to keep silent and holding on to the principles that you taught me in. The truth would prevail and all is good.

I love you dad. I know I haven't said this enough. But I really do. You were ever giving me the comfort and strength to go on. Like you always say, This is life. We have to just hold on and everything will pass. I really do not know what to do without the love both of you share with me. Thankful to be home at last.
