Dream To Be A Child - Poem by Gaurav Mittal

Who or what I am,
I will never know;
Dream to be a child
Never want to grow.

Living in the world
Of ice cream and shakes;
Smudging my face with
Puddings, pies and cakes.

Spending the whole day
Beneath open skies;
Running with my friends
Catching butterflies.

Kites, swings, bicycles
Toys, innocent lies;
Love, hugs, kisses and
Mother's lullabies.

In my heart I know
This to be a dream;
Need to face this world,
Cruel, though, it does seem.
