I marvel at this broken child who lived inside of me,
who struggled for so many years just longing to be free.
To live a life unburdened by my dark and early years,
that made my youth a living hell wrapped in unspoken fears.
My haunted past and broken heart could never quite recall,
the missing piece tucked safely back behind a guarded wall.
So well my mind protected me from all those silent fears,
that n'er did I suspect what lie behind those childhood tears.
Like the ghost it was, it came to me to haunt me in the night,
and brought me to my knees when life refused to treat me right.
Then suddenly, though sent by God, you've given me the key,
To open up these long locked doors and set my spirit free.
Now each sweet day is filled with so much joy and hope I find,
that little girl, so happy now, is dancing in my mind!
