Yearning For Bygone Days
Where are those sweet days?
When I was only a child
Worldly affairs had not spoiled my mind
The root cause of happiness
Lay in my innocent ignorance
I was as pure as white snow
How to deceive others I did not know
In God I had a great faith
Though much I was afraid of death
Love for me was only a question
That I could think without any tension
Going to school for me so far
Was like going to an endless war
Teachers approaching with duster and chalk
Appeared to me like a fearful hawk
The lecture proved to me a complete threat
I did not want them forever to meet
Homework for me was a huge burden
I had to ask them always for pardon
Gone are the days spent is the age
Trapped I am in a parrot’s cage
Longing for those beautiful days
Can anyone tell me where are they?
