Childhood - 3 - Poem by ramesh rai

Give me back the moment
while nothing was impossible to me
give me back the moment
while i was kissed by all guys

Give me back the moment
when Mom lull to make me asleep
i cannot forget the moment
when i stole spoons of sugar from kitchen
i can not forgo the moment
flying kite to touch the sky

Can I forget when I gazed at the stars
at their twinkling light
when i gazed at the moon
thinking to be a silver dish on the sky
while i was thinking
a deep valley at the end of earth

Give me back my childhood
when i was thinking to fly
like a butterfly.
When i was trying to understand
the language of birds and crow
i weep over the crow
when snatched biscuits from my hand

My childhood was a splendid moment
when the lap of my mother
was more than any heavenly bed
My childhood was the out give of my life
