BACK WHEN I WAS A CHILD

The song that moves and
 touches my heart is dance 
with my father again.
Because I will never forget 
the man my father was.
Back when I was a child 
I longed to be in his 
presence.
He had a larger than life
personality. 
His nieces and nephews
looked at him as a father.
“Oh lord I’m dying to dance 
with my father again”.
Everytime I hear the song I 
begin to cry.
I long for his hug
I long to hear his voice
“Oh lord I’m dying to dance
 with my father
again”
“ Oh lord we’re all dying
 to dance with my father 
again”.

Dance With Father Again

Absolutely Brilliant song by Lither Vandross. 1 of my favorite memories of my Father before he died was cutting his hair and picking him up and taking him to the toilet very sad but 2 grown men dancing seems rather odd . Do not put off till tomorrow what you can do today because tomorrow may be 1 day to late . Cheers loved it very emotional

Such a beautiful poem, Alexis. I can really relate to this poem because my father and I have such a close bond, which isn't surprising since I'm named after my father. This was a very heartfelt write, and I feel for your loss. A gem of a poem. A triple 7! Love and smiles to you.

This exceptional poem hit me deeply my friend. I lost my father when I was fifteen. I know exactly how you feel and how one longs for time with a deceased father. Now as of January 30th, deceased mother has been added to my longings.. A7 and a beautiful fav for me..

Really good and touched my heart Alexis. It's a shame you can't enter your own contest or this would be a winner for sure. You really penned these emotions, the loss, the missing and the love for your father so well.
