My Child Within
I found my child within today,
For many years so locked away,
Loving, embracing, needing so much,
If only I could reach in & touch.
I did not know this child of mine,
We were never acquainted at 3 or 9,
But today I felt the crying inside,
I'm here I shouted, come reside,
We hugged each other ever so tight,
As feelings emerged of hurt & fright.
It's okay I sobbed, I love you so!
You are precious to me, I want you to know,
My child, my child, you are safe today,
You will not be abandoned, I'm here to stay,
We laughed, we cried, it was a discovery,
This warm loving child is my recovery.
