LONGINGS OF THE INNER CHILD
written by: Gabrielle Tetreault
She dances in her pretty laced dress
Her hair like golden wheat in the summer sun.
Across the room she ran and plunged at him
Abandoning herself to his strong arms
High above his head he held her
Like and angel, she reached up
To catch her fantasy.
With complete faith in the love
She knew so well, that held her.
The joy, the freedom and elation
On her face reflected to me,
The longing in my heart
As the child in me, jealous of her
Yearned to be in her place.
