Come Dance with Me Daddy Just One More Time

My Dad has AD. He taught me to dance. His feet still twitch when he listens to music. This was written for him. Come dance with me Daddy just one more time before you go and leave me behind. I guess I've been blind to the clues you have given That things weren't right in your life. But I closed my eyes and refused to believe that the big strong daddy I loved Could be in such pain and struggling alone toward the end of his life. Come dance with me daddy just one more time before you go and leave me behind. I hope I can make this journey of yours as easy as you've made mine And I hope in the future God gives me the chance To help you remember that you taught me to dance. You held me real tight while counting the steps and told me which way to turn Then we were floating and dancing like mad And I was so happy just dancing with Dad. Come dance with me daddy just one more time before you go and leave me behind. You've forgotten my name and the name of your wife And you don't recognize your boys But I hope for you, Daddy, with all of my heart That you remember just dancing for joy. Let me hold you real tight and count steps in your ear, Let me help with all of your turns, Let me lead when you need me and help you to find The joy of dancing one more time. Now when I pray I ask God for the chance To have with my Daddy just one last dance. Come dance with me daddy just one more time before you go and leave me behind.
