~*~ Teenager Within Me ~*~

My teenager has just up and run away.
And, yes I really wanted her to stay.
She was able to fill my day with delight
And make all that was wrong feel right.

Yes, my teenager has fled from home,
Leaving me sad and feeling so alone.
With her presence I could dance and sing,
For only happiness to me would she bring.

Now she is gone and I know not where.
About my life I no longer seem to care.
When she was here I'd laugh every day.
Just having her around brought joy my way.

How can I survive without this young girl,
For she kept my life in a constant whirl.
No worries or troubles to suffer through.
Life with her held such fun, that's true.

But, I had little to offer a teenage child.
She needed to be free and a little wild.
So it was impossible for me, you see,
To keep a teenager hidden deep within me.

Now I must act as a grownup should,
Stop all my dreaming (if only I could),
For it was this teenager deep within me
That kept my spirit feeling young and free.

Yes, it is time for me to act my age,
For lifes book has turned another page.
With a wave of my hand I'll bid her goodbye.
Then I will just sit and have a good cry.
