Dance with my Father-Luther Vandross

       I was browsing on YouTube last night and surprised to see myself got teary-eyed with this song. It simply reminds me of  how blessed I am to have my father, who has been with me through ups and downs.  To my father who's always been there whenever I needed money and  never let me down. Thanks haha =)      Kidding aside, check out the lyrics of the song.  I'm sure you will remember the happy moments you shared with your Father. God bless all the fathers out there!    ( Note: You can check the song at my "Music playlist")

DANCE WITH MY FATHER
  (Luther Vandross)

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 

Spin 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 

Ooh, ooh 

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, yeah, yeah 
Then finally make me do just what my mama 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 
And I’d hear her, mama cryin’ for him 
I pray for her even more than me 
I pray for her even more than me 

I know I’m prayin’ for much too much 
But could You send back the only man she loved 
I know You don’t do it usually 
But Lord, she’s dyin’ to dance with my father again 
Every night I fall asleep 
And this is all I ever dream
