30 Years


If I had my will
I would’ve clocked back thirty years
With her on the Ferris wheel!

Go girl red ribbon on the merry-go-round
Go back on the rocking boat
Thirty years whizzed past us
That time looks dreamily remote!

My belle gaily girl of yore
Go ride once more on the wheel
I would clock back thirty years
I would hold time still!

Still lurking there in your eyes’ gleam
Still stirring there a dream
That goes back those thirty years
For popcorn and licking ice-cream!

Girl, go, run once more
Thirty years is never too far
It’s still there with open door
The time it can’t forget her!

    Thirty years has come and gone,
    Who sings the chorus of our songs;
    Who hums the lingering melody
    Of what was our brief harmony? (Report) Reply

    A whimsical urge to retrace our steps and travel back to time when in childish enthusiasm, munched the pop corn and licked the ice cream and revolved round the merry go round! Very beautiful, invoking nostalgic memories! (Report) Reply
