To Dance With My Father Again

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 ‘til 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 moma said
Later that night when i want to sleep
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, love
To dance with my father again

Sometimes I’d listen outside her door
And I’d hear how mama cried for him
I pray for her even more than me
I 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

by Celine Dion

This song makes me remember the man in my life, Bapak. This song makes me cry.

I really miss him. The message in this lyric has a similarity with my story with him. Some days before he left me forever, I had danced with him for the first and the last time. Bapak. I’ll always pray for you. Hope Allah SWT will give us a chance to meet again in the most beautiful place ever had. aamiin
