Sweet, Sweet Handsome Harlem Man

Espiritu en Fuego/A Fiery Spirit

 

Sweet, Sweet Handsome Harlem Man

Where have you gone? Heaven bound so many years ago. 

Do you remember the Zoot Suited Dandies frequenting Small’s Paradise.

The Elegant Sophisticated Ladies Swing Dancing on the A Train with Duke Ellington.

Air Force Bridge to Wright Patterson A.F.B.

Robert Fletcher bridge to your small town Woman.

A Wedding scarce. A Marriage solid.

Hearts conjoined for 40 years.

Opening the treasure of Dad’s old trunk I Lindy-Hopped eons into the Harlem Renaissance.

Sweet Sweet Harlem Man.

 

 

Every time I listen to this song tears come to my eyes. Yes Lord if only I could dance with my father again. One day in Heaven we shall dance together for eternity.

 

Sunday is Father’s Day here in the United States  I want to give a shout-out to All Fathers out there but I especially want to focus on Black and Hispanic Fathers…
