Masked lady

(October 27,1956 / Manila, Philippines)


The noise, the laughter, the scream
The children’s voices so sweet and full of choices;
Innocence mindless of life challenges
A reminder of the life I once had.

The toys, the playground and kids at play
I wish they are always here to stay,
But life’s keep going,
Tomorrow all these belong to longing
Of the childhood we’d hope to forever have.

The noise, the laughter, the scream
So sweet, so nostalgic,
Symbol of childhood,
In my heart I will forever cherish.

    I cherished my childhood days, because I was surrounded with love by my family.
    And my parents wanted to develop my strengths to the max.I admit though that I don't have the toys because life was not that easy for us, but we manage to bond and keep our family together.
    This is a very beautiful reminiscent of the past..But life must go on, and we must make the most of it.. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
