Through The Eyes Of A Child

What one thing would you tell Yourself
If the grown-up You could talk
To the growing-up You?

Could the Grown-up You
Take you by the Hand
Make you understand
Life's a Wonderland
That she once was you

Would the Growing-up You look away
Not want to stay
Try to go and play
Chase the You away
If She only knew

You were once that Child
But you had to grow
Learn the things you know
Let emotions flow
No more to be wild

The Growing-up you turns her face
She tilts her head
She hears Words said
Is easily led
Both Hearts keep pace

The Grown-up you is mesmerized
She sees her Soul
Down cheeks Tears roll
From thoughts she stole
She sees Herself
In the Child's eyes

The Grown-up you can now remember
Fun filled days
Childish ways
Sunshine's rays
Memory's burning Embers

The Grown-up You
And the Growing-up You look
And they both see
That which was Me
And is to be
Yet both content knowing

Things you tell yourself
As a Grown-up
Tell the Growing-up
Of things
Which will make you Glad
For Memories had
Though some be bad; do not be Sad
For one Spirit melds the Two

How nice it is to see someone write about the child in all of us. It seems most of us are too eager to be done with childhood and never look back.I believe Wordsworth said "... the child is father of the man.....". Wistful and cozy! Be well, Michael

What a unique write this is, I love the depiction of the two selves here Star. Alas, we do not get to see what our future holds for us though, we have to forge that future step by step as we age, and it is ultimately ourselves that shape our future. Henry

I too enjoyed this write. Like you say, if only we could see the future before we get there. Well written.

A very well written poem. You are a good writer and should keep penning your skill that in time may become exceptional.
