Childhood


Childhood was a time of innocence
When life was considered to be unambiguous
When the world seemed to be fair
When the universe was based around our little brown bear

Childhood was a time when we lived in dreams
Our future hidden behind life-size screens
When everyone appeared to be our friend
We didn't have to consider what would happen in the end

Childhood was a time when life was full of colours
We would all depend on our feeble Mothers
When sorrows never knocked at our doors
We didn't need to be concerned about wars

Childhood was a time when love was pure
We would all behave immature
There were no obligations
No need to fear the regulations

Childhood was a time which is now long gone
All our friends and family have all moved on
Childhood will never come back but
We all have memories untold, remembered until we grow old.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
