I never tire of playing this particular song of Luther Vandross'. The love and the longing in the song touches my heart. I didn't lose my father until he was in his 70's, but saddly my father (like so many fathers) lacked the ability to openly express the love he had for his four sons. When I hear Luther sing about his father, I like to think of my own father in the same way, even though he never actually expressed himself that way. It is a touching song, in the same mode as Clapton's "Tears in Heaven".
