“I Have an Idea”
Go find her…
… then, she will be okay,
that little girl, you’ve locked away.
She may be scared and a little shy,
search for her, it is time.
You used to spend time together.
playing outdoors, no matter the weather.
You used to, write, draw, crayon and read a lot.
So many things, that you’ve forgot.
Stupidly, you’d behaved like a brat,
telling her to shut up, what did she think about that?
You’d never taken time to tell her that you cared,
You stopped her, when with bravery, she’d dared.
You’d called her stupid and dumb,
hiding her away, when adulthood had come.
You didn’t kiss her, to say goodbye,
You were thoughtless, harsh, mean, unkind.
We all quarrel with those we love,
perhaps your inner child has run off.
Feeling distraught, she’s hidden herself away,
I have an idea,
Let’s persuade her, to come out to play…
