That unabashed exuberance!
The eloquent zest that blossomed out of my soul:-
Bathed in the ecstasy unknown,
The frolicking fun-loving gambol!
Yes it was me, oh yes! Oh yes!
Years and years ago
The pure and divine childhood,
The innocence in eternity stowed …
Even a bit of it left no more!
Dozing off to the favorite lullaby-
Oh it’s a vague memory echoing inside!
The crayons and the coloring books are
Somewhere in the attic, dust-eaten bonafide
Authenticating my years of enfance!
Chasing butterflies in the garden
Running around without an iota of tension
That knocks around every now and then
As I look back to the days of innocence!
Memories of my childhood
You’re the ode to my deliverance!
As age eats away my youth,
The reminiscences indulge in sweet offence:-
Happiness and sadness come conjoined,
I reflect, I smile and I cry in solitude!
No more neighborhoods to intrude:-
No more childlike divinity to exude:-
As I stand neck-deep into adulthood!
