The Big Girl That She Is

Updated on September 9, 2011

The little girl inside

Wants to sing, dance, and play

The little girl inside

Hops and jumps along the sidewalk way


The little girl inside

Wants to ride a bike all day

The little girl inside

Has a million things to say


The little girl inside

Wants to learn ballet

The little girl inside

Likes to shout hooray


The little girl inside

Likes to eat a cone with sorbet

The little girl inside

On one knee she likes to pray


The little girl inside

Cries when led astray

The little girl inside

Wishing a bird a blue jay


The little girl inside

Is no longer set to replay

The little girl inside

Must be put away


The big girl that she is

Has an image to portray

The big girl that she is

Must lock the little girl away

      awesome!

      The innocence of a person can make one don such wonderful things but, the outside person wants to act her age...

      it's like i am young at heart but my body appearance does not allow me to do such things!

      beautiful with many votes up!

      Sometimes Saddle we have to let it go. For some its easier said then done but it hinders the happiness one carries inside I was so hooked on my past and the life I lived that i couldn't find happiness any where. I hope things from your past are released and sailed upon the blue ocean with a farewell and a kiss. I really do wish your boy wouldn't be so heart broken and that it heals from all you witnessed and have undergone. Hugs lots of them and warm wishes.Said with love and respect.

      All great poets have someone hidden away who wants to come out and play, I am thankful that my little boy is still yearning to come out and play, my Muse let's him, but unfortunately he only wants to share his sorrows from the past.

      I wish I had a pleasanter little boy. I wish only for happy playmates for you bella, so let her come out and play with you, she will keep you smiling. Hugs

      Good

      but no matter how old we get like we still have some childish ways. When we have kids we have to learn to play and be little again. LOL.

      We still want to run and jump sometimes but as a child we act as a child when grown we should act grown too ;)

      I think the little girl inside deserves some fun...let her stay and play.

      I hope to never lose my Inner Child. But I don't think I can even if I wanted to.

      Thnks Sub Ron. :) hugs

      Car, I know right I want to say that at times as well but I got a little girl in reality and sometimes I wish I could be her and have her spirit but I am a mommy with responsibilities and just take it as it comes. But when I have free time when they go visit their dad you best believe I let that little girl out ;)

      I will never lock my little girl away....you can't make me!......LOL

      We women...and some guys too...all have a little girl inside. That little girl sometimes save us from the more serious things in life, for when we feel the pressure we can let loose that little girl to romp and play. Sometimes that little girl is the reason we enjoy life!
