I should have never turned her away.
So many years have passed, and she’s back in my life.
But our parents dating for a while left me refusing her.
And she left for the romantic city of Paris.
My pretty girl becoming a ballerina. Forever gone.
But life has a way of taking things full circle.
Due to an injury, she’s back in our small town.
My second chance to make things right stares me in the face.
She’s all grown up, and still stealing my every thought.
But I can’t compete with her dreams. Letting her go is what’s required of me, and I do it, but not without cost.
Never in a million years did I expect her to take a gift with her.
