My Old Friend The Wounded Child Within

Poem/Song


I met an Old Friend Today,
Who happened to come my way.
I didn't know that He was there,
He didn't know that I care
My Old Friend.


I sat Him upon a chair
He stayed there all by Himself
Locked inside His room
Musing in His gloom , my Old Friend.
And then I realized there was something missing.
I felt such and emptyness inside.
Within the corners of my mind
Who did I find, my Old friend.


He sat there so patiently ,waiting for me to see.
The hurt I felt inside, His love I had denied,
My Old Friend,
He sat there so patiently, waiting for me to see.
The hurt I felt inside, His love I had denied,
My Old Friend,


And then I realized there was something missing.
I felt such an emptyness inside.
Within the corners of my mind
Who did I find, my Old Friend, Jesus!!
