The Child I Used to be

“The Child I used to be”

Somewhere back in the halls of time
Wondering the memories that fill my mind
That’s where I lost her, I don’t know how
But she ran from the woman that I am now

Many a night when my thoughts go wild
I long for the innocence of that child
And just as I wish I could ease Her pain
I wish in my heart I were her again

But time came to stand between her and I
And she slipped even further as time went by
Finding a shelter where time stands still
Alone she has left me to face my will

Now frightened and weak, Lord, I run to Thee
I run, for my will seeks to conquer me
Would that I loved you without pretense
As I did in the time of my innocence

That the child I miss would again run free
That her faith would again be alive in me
Then, just as the memories of her begin
You whisper that I can be born again

Revealing the place where she sits alone
You call her by name and you bring her home
And merging together the two in me,
The child I was, the adult I can be,

You give me the chance to go back in time
Reach out for purity, make it mine
And now that my sins are forgiven, at last
You’ve brightened my future and healed my past
Igniting again by your love for me,
The faith of that child I used to be.

Norma...I just came across this piece and I was so moved by it...that's me too! You did what your heart has been longing for... touched another heart with your writing! Thanks Norma!

Me, again...just caught the date on your poem... you wrote this for me...four years ago! I say "for me" as noone else commented and it was so very pertinent to this moment for me...it is very beautiful in every way.
