Innocence - Poem by Kavya Leo Vakkayil

The lock was on the gate
Yet the door was unlocked
I opened the door gently
And ran inside the park

I wished to see the kids
Playing the swings out there
Smiling cuddling and crying
But there were none today

I walked through the lawns
Together with my friend
We waited for a while
Listening the nature's sounds
Birds sang sitting on the trees
Sprinklers watered the plants
Sky was clear out there
But we were all alone.

I ran to the swings
And sat on it
Like in my childhood days
And started to play
I asked my friend to come
To play with me this day
We sat and flied so high
Smiling; staring each other

For a moment I felt the glow
Inside us shine so bright
I saw the innocence
Still inside our hearts
I knew its deep inside
Beauty of childishness
Never lost; yet hidden
Within the box of adulthood

I saw the kids coming
To play in the green yards
My eyes looked all around
It captured a panorama
At the corner of the park
I saw that old couple
Swinging on a swing
Living their childhood again
Sometimes all we need
Is someone to grow old with
Who comes all the way
To swing the swings with us

I looked them;
Prayed inside
Never to lose the child
Which I nurture inside
I want this innocence
Inside me forever.

    A child resides inside a person however old he becomes and that child is the source of his happiness at almost all the occasions along with it's childish innocence.
