child of mine

Child of Mine

Oh, little child of mine
I finally know you're here
and I want you to know
that I am learning to care

I care that you were hurt
deep wounds to soul and heart
and I in ignorant blindness
kept myself so set apart

I didn't want to hear your rage
from all the pain you've had
I didn't know to reach for you
to love you even if you're bad

But I'm coming to a place
that your fear and pain I feel
I know with my love for you
heart and soul; we both can heal

It's okay for you to scream
to rant and moan and cry
I will love and hold you
as pain's storm rages by

For years you've fought for life
for yours as well as mine
years, too, I turned away from you
left you and our pain far behind

No more do you face this world
so small, scared and all alone
we will walk together now
your solitary fight is done

It's our time to feel this love
it's a gift for just us two
so reach out, take my hand
I'm now reaching back for you
