Days went by
You didn't return
I waited for your call
You became a stranger
But I still loved you.

People told me I would never see you
People told me you would never come back
I told them that's not true
I told them I will go see you when I am bigger

When I found out I would come to the US
When I realized I would see you for the first time
My heart raced
I couldn't wait to get out of the airport
The process took way too long
I wondered if you would recognize me
I wondered if I would recognize you

You were standing outside
You were wearing a black coat
You had a blue balloon in your hand
It said Welcome in yellow letters
You had a bouquet of flowers in your hand
You handed both of them to me
I was your little princess
I am your little princess

I held onto the balloon for three days
from New York to Boston, I held onto it
When it flew away I cried
It was the first thing you gave me
and I let it go.
