Before They Grow Up - Poem by Pradip Chattopadhyay
Take the children to the seaside
To a fair for a joyride
Be with them as long as you can
Because soon they'll be man!
Cuddle them hold them tight
Drown in their eyes' joyous light
The short days though bright
In no time will be out of sight!
Spend with them in long travel
Delight in their childish marvel
See them giggle in boundless glee
Such times though divine quickly flee!
Tell them stories sleep with them
Play with them the silliest game
Without restraint let them be wild
Before cruel time banishes the child!
