A Girl’s Tale

Caramel brown hair, hazel eyes and an Irish smile. That’s where it begins. A pleasing manner and a soft spoken tone. A joy of movement and friends. Spin the bottle, a first kiss and red cheeks. A bike ride and a dive in the pool. In a group-but always a bit on edge. Competing with the best but never quite there. A good kid overall; wanting a little more but kind to those with less. Singing in the chorus; just to be close to the cute tenor. A close encounter; a special boy. Trying to become what she thought she should be. A tear in her eye as she watched it all fade away.
