For the first time in my memory

Mom and Dad were talking with each other calmly

without yelling, insulting or blaming each other.

 

The child in me was shocked with disbelief.

 

For the first time in my memory

Mom and Dad took responsibility for their actions.

 

The child in me was amazed and crying out in joy.

 

For the first time in my memory

I did not need to intervene or feel responsible for their arguments.

 

The child in me was calm and peaceful.

 

I realized how much emotional pain their arguments

burdened my child within.

 

The child in me could just observe and be.

 

The child in me was no longer responsible

for the unhappiness of my parents.

 

The child in me is smiling

 with expansive joy and gratitude.

Nicely said, Shervin.  I suspect the child in a lot of people have been suffering similar feelings.  Too often parents fail to realize the effect their arguments have on their children, both young and adult.

John, Thank you for your comments. I agree. I did not realize this was an "issue" until it came up during a session. We sometimes hide painful issues in a nice box and put it in the closet or just deny its existence.
