Oh Childhood!

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!
