Do you miss your childhood?
I miss the way we took pleasure in small things.
Balloons, candies and cookies.
Even as great things crumbled.
We did hide-n-seek,
And peeped through the bushes,
And danced gaily at celebrations.
Or laughed away when the other fell.
Chased away mum for that glass of milk,
And fancy dad’s return for chocolates.
To chitter, chatter.
And be the teacher’s pet.
Party on getting ten on ten.
Or those birthday treats.
Running fast to get the front seat,
Or take hours to finish the last spoon of mum’s best dish.
Neither we could control the world around,
Nor felt the need for it.
There was not a search for happiness.
Or hiding away from crying.
We took the world as it is and smiled.
Could not walk away from things or people or moments that hurt,Yet took joy in the things that made us happy.
If you still miss your childhood,
It’s never too late to have a happy childhood.
