The Child Within| Short Poem

The child within smiles at the toys I see

The child within is happy to be me

Fascinated by the street lights and the sounds of the sirens that she’s only heard on TV

She wished this for me

The child within got me as far as  she could

And now she smiles

Watches my life unfold as it should
