That Was Childhood

Better was life then as burden was less,
no desires to fulfill and no dreams to chase,
small were the wounds that we did face,
life seemed to be game then but never a race..

nothing to define and no words to praise,
it was simply life's most beautiful phase,
love for dolls or sometimes crase for dress,
such was the time with innocence at the base.

mom's angel had the divine grace,
no wishes were needed to supress,
a single drop of tear easily solved every case,
pain and struggle did never find the trace..

every moment life gave a new arena to guess,
the desire to grow up had made life a complete mess,
attempts are made to maintain a proper pace,
childhood was the best time and beyond words to express.

Childhood is the most precious time but the passing time, circumstances, responsibilities demanded understanding, sensibility to cope up, in this race, time flied too fast and i lost my innocent childhood somewhere in the midst of those faded memorable days
