Good nite, love luck and lollies
Ardonida


I walked into my room last nite,
and with a start I felt at fright.
I had this smell and it was not clear,
but I could swear a child I hear.

I looked about, and saw it there
in the corner, she sat, a blank stare.
I asked what the matter could be
and a tiny face looked up at me.

Her voice was old, much older than mine,
but I thought I knew it well, all the time.
Her eyes were big, yet very sad,
and just to see that made me mad.

She picked herslef up, and took my hand,
and she wiped the tears- I do not understand.
She gave a little hurting smile,
and I puller her up, held her tight for a while.

I do not remember too well what she said,
I do not remember, I shook my head.
I just fealt that in me something broke,
I do not remember, I felt all choked.

She then once again sat down and said:
"Darling, I am you, the child you forget,
I am you , I am your regrets,
I am you, you have forgotten me-childhood shreds."

I was shocked, and I was to blame,
the child in me I have shamed.
I promised again, to her and myself,
that the child in me will shine in health.

I looke dat her, and her face was bright
and from her eyes shone a great light.
I once again held her close to my heart,
and I knew a new journey were to start.

I guess what I with this will say,
dont ever let the child in you go astray.
Life is but as good as yo see,
who then is better to enjoy it, than the CHILD IN ME!!

Ardonida, very interesting and good advice. I think I should talk to the child in me and make sure he's alright. Thank you for posting this.
