Healing Me... The Child Within

Maybe you didn't know,
how much it would mean to me
to have your hand in mine.

Maybe you didn't know,
how much it would mean
to hear your voice.

Maybe you didn't know
the dreams I had...
of love and of sailing.
Little pictures in the sand,
What is my name?
Tears in my pillow,
you never saw.

Time has shattered--
no hellos or hurrahs,
graduation or pretty flowers

Trees are so tall,
it makes me wonder...
Red bird flying,
wait for me.
Dreams as wide as the ocean
listen when I speak...
I long to please.

I'd give you all I had
hidden treasures
from my pockets
and my heart.

Grown woman, little child
my hand still reaches-
Time is swiftly going.
Take my hand in yours,
Lord....Father

May I call you that??
Lead me to safety, to the unknown,
stay with me for a while.
Blue skies fill the earth,
a gentle breeze blows,
I close my eyes
and I feel ...
peace.
