(December.1955 / India)

Return my Childhood


If I get a chance to bargain
Will ask the Almighty again;
‘O God! If thy really could
Give me back my childhood.

I want back my those days,
Innocent acts and plays,
Tricky games and cycle race,
Showing friends masked face,

Digging pits in soil of land,
Drawing sketches in the sand,
Running after the butterflies,
Watching planes in the sky,

Playing with the puppy,
In parties becoming happy,
Hopping in the streets
Going to buy sweets,

Doing things not known to me,
At times crawling on knees,
After school watching cartoons,
Little sleeps in the afternoons,

Doing independent activities,
Free from all responsibilities,
Free from all kind of tensions,
Asking confound questions.’

Childhood is morning of life
From here life begins thrive;
No hardness, no tough heat,
Childhood is innocent n neat.

‘Return my childhood,
O God! if thy could.’

    Munshi Durga Sahai 'Suroor' wrote a poem on childhood in Urdu. He expressed the same feelings. And you did it in English. Nice poem composed with vivid imagery. I liked the theme very much. Kudos to your skill. Keep it up. I rated it 10. Thanks for sharing..... I shall be highly obliged if you please read and rate my poem 'A world of treason' on page 4. Warmest regards Akmal (Report) Reply
