I had to come back to this place
always heard whispering in my ear
Oh Little girl, somehow I knew
I’d still find you here.
Among the memories waiting
wondering if I was coming back
to find the child I left long ago
forgotten in my past.
I gather you up and hold you close
as we walk through the rooms of our soul
Pieces of you and me once broken,
healing and becoming whole.
Looking inside from the child within
I see all the pain you must feel.
Knowing that we must tend to each wound
before we truly begin to heal.
We walk through the lonely places
that once held our yesterdays
oh how I wished I’d protected you
in so many different ways.
And yet I know that through the hurting,
we’ve gained strength in what we’ve learned.
In all the lessons remembered,
in all the times once burned.
In every tear we ever cried,
and every broken heart,
in every time we were in a crowd,
and felt a million miles apart.
We learned to hold the truth inside
and somehow we got by,
we built the walls around our heart
and “they” never saw us cry.
We learned that fighting to survive
was what we had to do,
and so I lost the biggest part of me
the day when I lost you.
It’s hard to face the ugly truth
and really look inside,
to know I left you all alone,
living with the hurts and lies.
You were the child inside of me
and I failed you the most.
In the mistakes I made along the way,
in the different paths I chose~
But I’ve come back to find you,
to finally bring you home!
So that together we can learn to live
and never be alone!
I want to find the kid inside,
and heal the pain we knew.
I want to learn to love the me,
that I forgot to love in you!
And as I pack up all your things,
I have hope in what will be…
As I learn to love you more…
Cuzzzz after all you’re ME!
