The Child in Me

I was visiting my mum tonight and we went out a walk, which made me reminisce of my wonderful childhood days.  This next poem is inspired by just that.

The Child in Me

The Child in Me,
Smiles inside.

Sunny days,
And stars that guide.

Love and laughter,
All the way.

Falling down,
Back up the same day.

The Child in Me,
Has never grown old.

She sings and dances,
And plays in the cold.

She lives with heart,
She lives with joy.

An empty box,
Is her creative toy.

The Child in Me,
Is always there.

A warm friendly hug,
And a midnight prayer.

She is invincible,
With starry eyes.

She dreams of playing,
Beyond the skies.

The Child in Me,
Is present now.

I let her be free,
She takes a bow.

Happy in this moment,
Happy to be alive.

I maybe older now,
But I still feel like five.
