If I could get another chance
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
~ Written by Luther Vandross with Richard Marx
“Happy Birthday, Dad. I miss you.”
If I could get another chance . . .
To sit by the ocean with our cooler and sandwiches, and talk.
To walk, holding hands.
“Are you ready? I’m right here. Here we go . . . ”
To hug you, and be hugged back by you.
To be led by you.
“Dad, I don’t know how to dance like this.”
“I’ll lead. Just follow me.”
How I’d love love love . . .
To dance with my father again.
Rewriting life since the sudden death of my nine-year-old son, Sam (2007).
