I wish I Could See Him Again

daddy di do du! XD

Dance With My Father by 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 
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 last glance
When last step 
One last dance with him
I’d play a song that would never ever end
Cause I’d 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 too 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

Out my living room window I see green. Mountains that surround me with spots of houses. Mountains that are slowly evaporating-like in my country. And as I allow the sun to bless me with its blissful rays I think of my father–of this certain song that popped up in my head this morning. I dedicate this song to my father–the person I wish to see again. Not because I haven’t seen him but because I just want to bring back memories–memories lost in time–memories that seem hidden in the depths of the earth. I long to feel that fatherly love again–that out most emotion of being held by the man you knew before God.
