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 play a song that would never never end
How I 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 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 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
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 to much
But could you send back the only men 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

Madalas at karaniwan na silang bansagan bilang “haligi ng tahanan”, pero kung ako ang tatanungin, hindi lang sila basta-basta haligi ng ating tahanan. Sila ay ang bubong, pader, poste, bintana, pintuan, lababo, hagdan etc., sa kabuuan sinisimbolo nila ang isang buong bahay sapagkat kung wala ang mga ito sa isang bahay, masasabi pa ba nating isa itong tahanan? Kung wala ang mga ito marahil tayo’y namamalagi sa kalsada’t kawalan. Marahil tayo’y nagkasakit na dahil sa walang poprotekta sa atin sa...
