Little Girl

I grew up watching you,
Tucked safety in your bubble.
Surrounded by books of princess and heroes.
Gallant battles, and happy endings.
You looked so delicate, 
Surrounded by the gentle glow.
The smile on your face,
So peaceful.
Your eyes sparkled
As you read your endless stories.
Oblivious, to the black surrounding you.
Watching from the shadows for as long as I can remember,
I stood guard.
Taking solace in your safety.
I fought so hard to keep the darkness out.
Desperately willing you to stay inside.
To stay safe, and unmarred by the harshness of the world.
But I now realize,
It was a battle I was never going to win.
She wasn't just some little girl.
She, was the purest part of me.
And I had to let her go.
