Happy 78th Birthday Tatay!

If he were alive, he would have been 78 today.

I miss him up to this very day.

This song is for him --

Dance With my Father by Celine Dion



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 stair 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'd play a song that would never ever end
How I'd love, love, love to dance with my father again

When I and my mom will 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 says

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, love to dance with my father again

Sometimes I'd listen outside her door
And I'd hear how my mama cried for him
I pray for her even more than me
I pray for her even more than me

I know, I'm praying for 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
