Little Girl Lost...

Lie yourself upon the outstretched palm of destiny.

Let yourself be cradled in her safety

And trust that the dips and curves

Are but the journey we travel

And one day, the peaks

Shall lift you to


Little Girl lost

The darkness that fills your days

Is just the night

Before the breaking
Of a brand new day

When the early morning birds
Shall sing your name

And the fields of tulips
That line the mountainsides
With velvet petals
Shall shade your pupils with brilliance

Little Girl lost

Your silent tears
Making their salty fate down your moist cheek
Shall fall
To wash the toxic bitterness
From your heart

And soothe, the gaping wounds
That loneliness
Has clawed upon the surface

And one day, the soft
Whispered breath

Of love shall,
Wash over you, once again...

Little Girl Lost.

I see the sadness that tugs
Upon the smile that dances upon your lips

And Little Girl Lost
I hear the echoes,
Of a lifetime of heart breaks

Harmonising their cold empty cries
To weigh upon your girlish laughter.

Little Girl Lost

I see the way you see
Yourself through eyes
Slashed with a thousand disappointments.

Through eyes that are clouded by
A hundred thousand moments
Of neglect and long forgotten tenderness

Through eyes that search for failure
Through eyes that search for discontent
Through eyes
That have forgotten
To sparkle and shy away from the midday sun.

Little Girl, Little Girl

Do you not see the beauty
In the way your hair falls
Delicately upon your neck?

... That begs once more... to be brushed aside by the breeze of a breathless kiss

Little Girl, Little Girl

Do you not see the beauty
In the inviting dip
Of the simple curve of your back

... That calls, once again, for the warmth of a softly guiding, loving hand...

Little Girl, Little Girl

Do you not see the beauty
In the soft rosy flush
Of your tear stained cheek

Have you forgotten
The simple touch of a cool loving palm
To wipe the tears that adorn
That mourn ... love lost?

Little Girl, Little Girl
Have you forgotten the beauty
Of the essence of you?

Little Girl.

Little Girl...not lost,
Just waiting to be found.

Lay yourself upon the outstretched palm of destiny

Let her support give you strength
Let her warmth give you hope
Let her quiet whispers hidden in fading moonbeams

Remind you that beauty lies within you
And, for all, who are around you.

And that winds shall wash away, even these worst of times.
And hurt may be pushed over the cliff to the crashing waves below
To make way... once more.

For the Little Girl inside.

Who deserves, above all;

To love
And be loved.
