While at my workplace, I listen to Pandora music or watch YouTube videos using my Blackberry phone. I usually pick up my favorite song writers and favorite singers then, I go from there. I like the music of Barry Manilow and I was surfing his songs. I came across to an old video with him narrating something about his childhood experience. I realized he came from a broken family too. Well, I listen... just listen...
I love this song but, it never occurred to me that it was about father-son relationship. A happy song in celebration of a good relationship. I can fully understand the sigh he made as he sit on the piano. The only memory that Barry Manilow remember his father was when he gave him a radio for his birthday.
Funny, I remembered my father too when he gave me a watch and a card for my birthday, LOL. Well, that was a long time ago. So; for all the fathers out there, visit your children every week and make sure you are there when they need you. If you take for granted your children's childhood memories and you are not there, you will only as good as a radio or a watch.
