Dance with my Father

"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"

I'm not really a sentimental type of person, I don't even cry watching some tear-jerking movies. But there's only one thing that usually breaks my heart - a scene involving a father and a child (a daughter, most especially).

Last Saturday, we attended my cousin's wedding. My husband and I were cord sponsors, Chloe was a flower girl and my mom was a principal sponsor. During their program, my cousin danced with her father with a very beautiful background music that I can't help but got me teary-eyed. The music played was so touching that it somehow broke my heart. I was not able to dance with my father because he already passed away a year before. My last dance with my dad was when I was 18 years old - it was my debut.

Seated beside me at the reception was also another cousin of mine, and my aunt, and we were teasing each other because they were crying, too, haha! Anyway, I was very happy for my cousin because she was happy to see all her loved ones present on her big day.

I researched at the net the next day about that song played at the wedding and I found it! The title was Dance with My Father sang by Luther Vandross. I'm sharing with you the video and the lyrics (and our some of our pics, too) and I insist that you see & listen to the music. You can see some famous personalities in this video, too. The music is really beautiful and the message is so meaningful.
