Once-When I Was Young Poem by Bryan Taplits

Once-When I Was Young



Recall- Oh! it's all seems so sad:
Every girls' grinning
At all earnest lads.
There were no quaking sunsets
As all were orange dawns
And each gilded-future
would nurture,
A shy verdant lawn.
The choices were simple
and everything fun
No truckling to anyone-
for we were all young.
'Life' knew no boundaries
And guffaws would come
And each of us thinking,
We are 'the chosen one! '.
But then bags fully packed
and youth hurriedly sent-
Sobriety secured
to adolescence.
Soon blooms grew heavy-
Withered with winds-
Though each of our excursions still slayed
Each venial sin.

So as one now looks back
Here's what is found:
Kindled memories once sparked-
All embraced and remembered-
in quenched…
but parched grounds.
With a yearning passed yearning
Still I hie and still long
For all of those tethered-past-soirees-
In my passed rainbow-ed dawns.
