Dance With My Father Again

I saw this video uploaded by a certain Sharla Talonding on YouTube. Great cover. I don’t know the name of this kid but I was moved to tears reading the lyrics.

I miss my dad. So many new things are happening in my life, as a wife and as a mother. I always wish I could share my experiences with him. I always think about what he and Noah would be doing whenever we’d visit him. I bet he would be showing Noah magic tricks. Or they could be fighting in a cute way just like with Nav.

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

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
When 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 how mama would cry for him
I’d pray for her even more than me
I’d pray for her even more than me

I know I’m praying for much to much
But could you send her
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

God, I miss him.
