ONCE UPON A TIME

ONCE UPON A TIMEonce upon a time

Once upon a time

There was a little girl

Who sat on her back step

And dreamed.little girl sitting on step.1

She dreamed of what life

Would one day be like

On the other side

Of the fence.

sparkly thingsLittle girls dream of

Pretty things,

Sparkly things and fairies

And butterflies.butterfly.3

She dreams of a

Handsome Prince

Who will love her

At first sight.handsome prince and cinderella.2

She dreams she is

More beautiful

Than Cinderella,

And that life itself

Does not

Outshine her at all.fairies

Such dreams, such belief,

Such beautiful thoughts,

Are only found

When you look

In her eyes.smiling girl

Once upon a time

There was a little girl

Who sat on her back step

And cried.girl on steps (1)

All her dreams

Had vanished

With one swipe of

A cruel man’s smile.girl crying

Such dreams, such belief,

Such beautiful thoughts

Had left

Her trusting eyes,

Clouded now by tears.little girl crying

Was not so easy

Anymore

To see where

The spark

Once lived.spark

In the midst

Of my soul

This little girl dwells

Now feeling

Safe and secure.inner child.1

I cradle her

Everyday

And tell her often

How special she is.inner child.2

This hurt little girl

Who was left alone

Is thriving in my heart.red

This hurt little girl

Who now holds my hand,

Is me.
