Words for the Child Within 

A poetic lullaby I wrote for my inner child/little girl, with my original illustrations, from several years ago.


I’ll hold you, safe
I’ll sing you songs
Wrap you in cozy blankets
Bottle up laughter like fireflies
So you can have it whenever you need

I want to tell you
you are precious,
precious and strong.

I honor your tears,
your worries, your fears.
I honor your darkness, your light.
I honor you, your dreams.

I believe you;
I believe in you.

And may you find
stillness in sleep
And may you know
you are held,
held and loved
