A Child Song ~ Rising Up To Heal

She speaks ~
the Child Song
still dwelling within the heart of me.

She cries ~
to be loved
and cared for every hour.

She longs
for the words
that will validate her being.

She waits
for each moment
to be loved.

Her past holds the memories
of suffering and pain . . .

Abuses to body and to soul.

Remembrance of times that
were difficult to bear –

as she wept inside,
in silence, and alone.

Today, I listen to her voice so tenderly,
to hear just what she has to say.

Together we shall find a way to heal ~
to bring her shadow forth into the light.

She gathers strength
to rise up
greater now ~ ~

To change into a
wiser, loving being.

Honored to serve
the greater goodness of life
that calls unto her soul to be.

This shall be so ~
this transformation
of my child ~ ~

She gratefully acknowledges
her gift;

that she who once was
wounded as a child ~

now forms the woman of compassion
that I be.

The bowl represents the Japanese art form of Wabi-sabi, that
teaches us that the healing which comes from our brokenness and
imperfections makes us stronger and more beautiful to serve
the greater good.
