1. Inner Child
There is a child I used to know
No one cared where she would go
Her body big and down her head
She didn’t speak when we first met
The girl was hurt, that I could tell
For I know her very well
Her pain, her anger, torn her apart
For it’s hard to heal a broken heart
We sat down and then she said:
"My heart is dying, my soul is dead,
Don’t you hear me, can’t you see
Life has nothing left for me…”
I held her hand and hugged her tight
And told her: “There will be a star so bright,
She will show you what to do,
To make your wishes all come true”.
You will sing and you will fly,
Crossing borders in the sky.
You will love and you will laugh
What you’ll dream is what you’ll have.
You will rise your head and know,
What to do and where to go
Don’t forget that road is long,
But one day you will be strong!”
She lifted her head and turned to me.
"How do you know, this will be?"
I held her hand and there we were,
Side by side I’m telling her:
"I cried for you a thousand times,
And you’ll always be within my mind,
My dear child, don’t you see?
I am you….and in the end,
you will be me.”
