In response to Daily Prompt: Childhood
Although this poem is not exactly focused on childhood per say, it is a recap of an old woman’s thoughts when she is nearing her end
It shows that the old lady knows that she is nearing her end but still wants to live more but at the same time knows that it is not possible so she walks down the memory lane of her whole life. The lady even though approaching a negative phase of her life, is still very positive in her attitude and respects & believes in God a lot.
Peeping in to the past
I realized life has moved on fast
I wish I could hold
Those wonderful moments and memories old
I wish I could hold that time
When I was a toddler and use to mime
How wonderful the world was
Just perfect and without any flaws!
I wish I could be a teenager
Throughout my life…forever and ever
Living life to the fullest
I wish I could hold that time which was perhaps the best!
I wish I could live that moment again
When my own identity I had gained
I had felt on the top of the world
Only because of the strength and success He has hurled!
I wish I could hold back those years
When there were only smiles and no tears
When there was no eruption of crime
I wish I could hold that time!
Life with its ups and downs
Has given me smiles and frowns
I have already lived to my hearts content
But I wish, quite a long life to me He would present!
But let us accept the facts
Time waits for no man
In one direction only it acts
Hold it back – nobody can
Once gone, its gone for ever
And comes back never
But we can re-realize our life
By the way of good memories which I have plenty
But one more boon is gifted by almighty
That is, to re-live our life
Of course, it is reincarnation – the new one
It is the resultant of good deeds that we have done!
I wish to me He would send
That new life which would be a perfect blend
Of happiness and good incidence
And I know it is possible because of His Elegance!
