Dance with my father again....

                       "who is to give light must endure burning"-victor frankl


















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 love
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
  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 usuall
But dear Lord she's dying
To dance with my father again
Every night I fall asleep and this is all I ever dream


for my dad(get well soon) and my uncle who just past away...may  he rest in peace!

Hi sis. On duty ako, napadaan sandali,break ko lang kasi.

Ganda ng flower mo. Macro shot.

You reminded me of my Dad, somehow nadagdagan ang lungkot ko. Ahhhhhh buhay talaga.Sometimes gusto ko ng itanong kung bakit may kalungkutan pa.

Get well soon sa popsie mo.
