This Little Child
I knew a little girl a lifetime ago
She loved to dance. Would play all day.
No worries would abound to ruin her smile
Her laughter could enlighten anyone’s vile.
I knew her for years, watched her flourish
Gave her the love required to nourish.
She tried to hold grip as I let mine go,
A tragic mistake, a regret I own.
She has been alone, waiting so patiently
While I have been dealing with life’s uncertainties
Watching and waiting, feeling so beguiled
This little girl, this angel, my inner-most child.
