I was recently reconnected with my inner child...and I'll never lose sight of her again......

You were always there, in my shadow
As far back as I can remember…
Even though my shadow grew more lengthy
With every passing year!

We chased rainbows in search of gold,
Danced in sweet-smelling meadows
Tailing butterflies and giggling
When buttercups turned our chin yellow!

We saw magic creatures in puffy white clouds,
Made up stories about their faces!
And when nighttime came
We wished upon every single star!

But somewhere along the way, you disappeared!
And I never even noticed you were gone!
Then life happened, and I never got around
To looking for you! But something was missing in me!

One day I grew into a woman
And I met that prince charming
You and I always dreamed about!
And he was everything we knew he’d be!

We were blessed with the most incredible gifts…
A daughter and a son to share our world!
And they became my every breath…
My reason for every single thing I did!

But children grow up! I did!
And the years went by quickly, until one day
My little fledglings learned how to fly!
And I suddenly found myself looking for you again!

It took a while, but I found you…
Right there in my heart, my precious inner child!
And I realized you’d been there all along, and
You are still the most important part of me!

A nice poem of renewal, Anna. Our lives definitely move in cycles, and here's a great example of that truth.

Enjoyed this Anna, what a reminder to keep safe that inner child, but make sure it comes out to play :) Having young Grand Kids helps too~

The child in me Annabel is what helps me thrive. Adults tell me often to stop acting like a child. My child's heart is what keeps me spirited and joyful and alive with hope and great expectation! I wouldn't surrender it for nothing in the world: it saved me through a 25 year marriage & divorce! I can truly identify with this great write and work of art as it enlightens me! Thank you, Peace!!!

Just an entire life's journey encapsulated in this one piece. You move, it seems to me each time you write into higher territories. This is of your best in my view.

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL WORK OF INSPIRATION! CERTAINLY, THAT PART OF ALL...THAT WE DO SO OFTEN LOSE SIGHT OF AS WE 'LIVE' FROM DAY TO DAY. WELL DONE, ANNABEL AND SO ENJOYED. THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS
Reviewed by Felix Perry
I must say this is truly an excellant and insightful piece Anna, and yes I think we all lose sight of or perhaps refuse to acknowledge our inner child...which to me is always a big mistake.

The 'Inner Child' a heart beat to drift into those
childhood days. Vivid imagery to delight.

What a beautiful,wonderful thing you have shared with all of us here at the Den, Anna. I have lived with my inner child all of my life. My experiences aren't so sweet or nice as are yours, but still, we console one another. That is very important. This was a very good write, and caused me to "out" my inner child, which I have never spoken of before.
Reviewed by Mark Lichterman
"Inner child"? It's been so many years since I've felt my 'inner child'. So glad for you, though, dear Anna, that you can once again connect to see and feel the wonders of those wonderfully innocent youthful ways.
Your friend; Mark
