Take care of your inner child
and your inner child will take care of you.
If I could go back in time,
and give myself all the love,
that I deserved,
but did not receive.
Your love helped me
to flourish and grow,
that’s the kind of love
I want you to know.
Siony Benemerito McCor
Self love, gives us the confidence
to carry ourselves,
between the boundaries of childhood fantasies,
and to the reality of the present.
We need to hold ourselves
in our minds hearts and arms forever.
I learnt unconditional love from the little me.
Wonder why did we
want to grow up so fast,
Wish our childhood could forever last!
There is nothing as beautiful as embracing your inner self.
What you seek, it’s you that can give yourself not the world.
Holding on to the innocence
Of the child in you,
Enables you to trust & love others but,
But for that to happen,
You need to love yourself first.
A child’s unconditional love and blind trust,
is what every adult should feel for themselves
Love and Care given to your children
come back to you often doubly and triply.
I held you while you were little,
but you were the one who has always held me together
That inner, little girl, needs your love
for the adult to grow old, well.
Embrace the simple joyful child in you.
That is where you will find yourself again.
A hug from your child often looms large
against all the problems of your life.
The child within always knows how to heal the adult without
Does the child within
Still control the adult you?
Do your early fears
Dictate the you of now?
Don’t you think
It’s time to let go
In the beginning, you’d think you were raising them when in reality, it’s always been the other way around.
You find “solace”; in an “embrace”
Hugging my inner child.
Embrace your inner child.
Cherish the person you will become
We must return to the child within us all in order to heal our adult wounds.
A child’s heaven lies within the firm arms of the mother
and the mother finds her solace by holding a special place
in her child’s heart.
Be kind to and nurture your inner child
