Child

I would dry your eyes when you cried,
Hold you tight
And say everything would be alright,
That this too will pass
And will not last.

Every problem you feel
Is real
And that to feel
Is real.

I would comfort and console
When life had taken its toll,
When you feel low
but have to put on a show.

I would kiss your forehead
As I put you to bed,
I would tell you to dream sweet dreams
And that all is not what seems.

Don’t fight it I’d say
You’ll understand one day.

If you feel alone
And like you shouldn’t because you’re grown,
I’d remind you that I’m here
And always will be near.

I would remind you you are light,
Pure, brilliant and bright.
So keep holding on tight,
You’ll be alright.
