Sweet Child of Love


You entered this world full of innocence.

 Hoping for loving arms to receive you.

 Knowing only the safety, nourishment and comfort of the womb.


You enter a world full of fear and anger

where hope may be lost and innocence becomes victim.


You no longer feel safe, nourished or comforted by the arms that received you and brought you forth into this world.


Still you keep innocence.

Still you keep hoping.

Seeking love, and trust that seems lost.


A lifetime passes.

Years of work, tears, pain and sorrow

along with great joy and new understanding,

give birth to a new way of being.


The quest complete that sweet child of love found

you may now leave this world once again full of innocence.


The circle complete.
