Found this in web search... I wanted to share it with you.


DEAR CHILD WITHIN

Your salted droplets keep falling like rain,
while I become weary from feeling your pain.

I'm sorry this evil was laid upon you,
it's over, I'm grown, what more can I do?

You hide, yet you scream,"why must it be me?"
I've tasted, I've felt, I've seen what you see.

The pain! it's intense, yet it seems to increase.
Will knowing I love you help make it all cease?

I must be what he couldn't be.
A parent to guide you, your innocence, set free.

Hush! Don't cry. I know you are sad.
together we'll make it, life is not all that bad.

I will guard and protect, I'm the adult here outside.
You, the frightened child within, please! don't hide.

Amanda,

I like "inner child" poems anyway, but this one is really good. I think the appeal at the end is what every inner child needs to hear:

Much love,

I think the idea of Inner Children a bit strange. But I like this poem. I think I know what this means.
