Words for the Child Within 

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

Text:

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
always.
