Gone are the days
Filled with fun and sun
When life just smiled
and there were no responsibilities piled.
Carefree and careless
Life was as perfect as a fairytale
There were less worries and nothing to ail.
Where the eyes just watched flowers bloom.
And there was less to gloom about.
There were dreams in the making
Everything seemed possible
Where innocence rocked
All roads unblocked.
Playing in the mud
Dancing in the rain
Sailing our paper boats in the puddle;
Playing on the swings;
Desire to have wings,
Running after butterflies,
Making castles of sand
Are now things of the past.
My childhood was robbed too soon.
I wish I could take a U turn
To live my childhood once again;
Is what my heart yearns for.
But deep inside I do know;
What is gone is gone.
Time never stops and everything undergoes a change.
But those pleasant memories of childhood shall always stay afresh
As long as I live.
And shall bring smile off and again to my face.
And I shall cherish them
And hide them and keep them safe and protected in my heart forever for they are my precious treasures.
