Treasure Island

A Child in Me

A child that cherishes in me
A refreshing thought it got to be
Like the little one I see around
I love to share the things I found
Still love to fly kites in the beach
Build the castles in the sand
Want to climb the mango trees
Guide the boats in the rainy day
Pluck the flowers in the neighbor's garden
Bonkers and fun with the old maiden
Love to swim and skip lunch
Enjoy my favorite munch
Want to go left and right
In mini skirts and marchfast
Close the eyes on horse rides
Fly the rockets on first benchers
Pin the hankies to the teacher's salwar
Make fake calls as pranks accord
Collect the piggy bank little coins
And fun around the new movies
Watch TV keeping a book in front
Make icecreams that turn brunt
Read the little comics that are fun
Watch cartoons of tom and cherry on run
Write little English lyrics we know
Of the mountains filled with snow
Wish among friends to glow
Love lots of boys' say that so
Play cricket hitting coconut trees
Breaking next door windows
Taking to heels as Auntie scrawls
Spinning back the balls and bowls
Riding the little red tricycle
Fighting if someone chuckles
Playing endless in the rocking horse
Not letting anyone in the little cradle
As the food gets on table, saying cheese
Making dirt climbing bikes with grease
Jumping in the little waters on roads
As rains leaves behind the village roads
Walking on the coconut trunk
That is the bridge between the farms
Running behind one winged butterfly
Or catching little fish in the brooks behind
A child in me will never die
As with childhood friends I cherish every day
As childhoods is always a part of me

Far south the lift,
