Lost are those days,

when each dawn had a new friend Β for me

Chirrupings of those birds delighted me

Winking of flowers made me laugh

Hands were only for hugs

Lips chanted only ‘mother’

Loneliness made me play

Bees recited poems

longings made me walk


but not forever

Days live, Friends live,birds live….

so do the child in me πŸ˜›

  4. Hmmm…I would never want my troubled childhood back…but I sure would like to revisit the period 1996 – 2003; my college days !!

    Nice poem, rekha πŸ˜€


  5. I used to think my childhood sucked. Although I still don’t think it was exceptionally great but I do kind of miss all the carelessness of that time. Life tends to get very complicated. Sadly we’re ruining the childhood of kids these days by burdening them with tuitions and high expectations these days. It’s unfair.


  6. of course those are gr8 days, without any pressure and worries. Won’t get back it again! 😦


  7. I wanna be a kid again! πŸ˜€

  13. @Rekha
    Just a suggestion
    ➑ Background of this page (Pink flowers) will feel good if its fixed!! Currently it moves as we scroll down.
    (try only if you have enough time πŸ™„ )
    (Just in case u don’t know, you only have to add “fixed” after and before “;” without quotes)


    (You can’t stop my suggestions even if you don’t want them- unknown)
