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.
