I am writing here about my most memorable songs and why they are so. I'm doing this as a way of recognizing the artists and their songs complimented by some of my stories with them.
You may also notice some of my Law School-related entries, the majority of which are case digests which I personally wrote (or summarized) from my on-line reading of our Supreme Court decisions, but strictly categorized as "case digest" or "law school".
Thank you for dropping by.
Another blogger by the name of Angel wrote to me her favorite song for now and why does she like this song. Below is the story:
It's really hard to lose someone special, someone you truly love. It causes so much pain, endless nights of crying and the feeling of emptiness within. It seems that your world stops rotating. It seems that you can't live our life anymore.
I felt all these things when my father died almost a year ago. That's the most painful moment that happened to me and to my family. I know that this kind of feeling will rally happen but I never expected it this soon. Until now, I keep on asking myself why did he leave us that soon. I even think that he might get tired taking care of us especially me because I am the most hard-headed child among my sibling. But then, I can't do anything other than to accept the fact that I can't see, hug and kiss him anymore.
Every time I hear this song, I remember not only that painful fact that my father is already gone but also the moments when he was still alive. Those happy memories with him are my treasures. They always give me strength to achieve my goals because all those goals are my promise to him.
There is just one wish I am always asking for - to be with him again even for only ten minutes. I just want to hug him for the last time and tell him the things I haven't told him.
He is gone now but surely he will always stay in my heart.
Thanks Angel for sharing this song with us. Wherever your father may be, I am sure he wants to let you know that he loves you no matter what.
Here is the lyrics.
Dance with my Father - Luther Vandross
Verse 1: 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 Spend me around till I fell asleep Then up the stairs he would carry me And I knew for sure I was loved
Chorus: 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
Verse 2: 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 momma said Later that night, when I was asleep He left a dollar under my sheet Never dreamed that he would be gone from me
Chorus: 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 to dance with my father again
Verse 3: Sometimes I'd listen outside her door I'd hear how my mother cried for him (2x) I'd 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
