I'm The Child Within The Woman That I Am..
Author: Terrie*


I know that I'm difficult to understand
theres no hidin' from you
you can read my heart so true
a woman with the heart
of a chid ....I am
stood still as life
quickly passed me by
my mind refused to go beyond
strange to a new life
I simply could not adapt
as if from another world
I pretended not to exist
I erased many things of the past
and pasted only those that I kept real close
I tried to get lost in the crowd
so no-one would notice
that my heart failed to thrive
a simple mind I have become
and that can happen easily
when you've lost the love of your life
you see
he did everything for me
he loved me like there was no tomorrow
my love was equal to his
we made promises for many years to keep
until one day his ,he was unable to keep
i quickly returned
back to the emryo that I was
now I question if you will stay and take care of me
as I once had been
because I was left alone with no one to love
my mind thinks like a child
not the woman you'd like
but the love I share and give to you
is what a real woman would
time over time my love I did neglect
yet a mother I was
and not one moment did I regret
the kids and I we grew up alone
with out a parent at our side
time after time I became the child I had been
yet I raised my children alone
yes I still fear being alone
my tears could have filled many oceans by now
all I want you to know and understand is that
I do need time to grow
but please take me under your wing
hold onto my heart and
let me pour out the rest of the tears I've held back
and you will understand
why your woman still remains the child within...

You know how to capture you're reader Hearts,
Shed a tear in the person you are so loving, gental and kind.
