crystalled by the gems from the sky,
sun played with it’s rays all around,
and, it made a fairy sight.
As I sat on the shore,
tired with life’s chores.
Out and in, thoughts ran
my mind seeking some place to be calm.
Childhood memories flashed me back,
to the time when I sat on my parents’ lap
no worries, no labels
just out from a cradle,
crayons, dolls, chocolates and teddies
were enough to make one merry
playing with a cute sibling
what else do you want from this living
Each time the doorbell rang,
up my heart would have sprang
for if my dad would have been there,
a hug, a chocolate and a ride followed me here.
Every night , when dreams came close,
mom would sit n sing a prose,
from a lullaby, heard many times
but still seemed so new , so melodious every time
Right now sitting on the sand,
I wish the sands of time,
had not slipped off too soon,
now I realise it was such a boon.
A phase, not be relived again,
but remembered and cherished
every once in a while.
Tormented by a busy life,
hundreds of thoughts scurrying around,
All I wish for now , is home.
A wish , unfulfilled, long gone….
