Daddy daughter time

I remember when I was 4-6 years old my father turned music on it was Sam Smith I'm not the only one. He held out his hand to me and asked "come on let's dance" I said " I dont know how" " I'll teach you" then I grabbed his hand and I got on his feet and we started to dance. When the music stopped I got on the couch and was embarrassed, the next day I believe he asked me again and I refused bc I wanted to play outside. He laughed and I went outside. I do regret refusing him over ten times during my life time but I'll always love you fatherĀ
