To My Inner Child

 

Hello Inner Child of mine

Through feeling and expression we intertwine

Relaxing on the golden mountain

In a sacred fountain

Breathing and being

Communicating by clear feeling

We do a sacred dance – us

We develop inner trust

Letting go, releasing and clearly-seeing

You learn to trust my inner being

You flow I flow

When we flow together we glow

Amored and spiritive

I write to you in first person narrative

I write to you as a foundation

As a source of strength

I am inner illumination

I write to you in creating trust and friendship

Seeking an impression and building kinship

Your fears may come and go

While we create more growth

Trust myself – it is ok now

Trust myself – my great big whole self.
