When I remember those old days
When our only work was to play
Those cherishing memories make me smile
And that happiness can't be defined
Our universe revolved around toys
I remember how we used to enjoy
Hours seemed to be seconds
Time just flew away
And those are the moments we cherish
When I remember that child
Who used to play day and night
Tears roll down my eyes
Ad those days were the real surprise
Stress was not a part of our life
We were only found with a smile all the time
Anger and jealousy did not knock our doors
Everyone wants to live those moments a little 'More'
From playing all days on the streets
To be alone
And stick to that 'Mobile phone'
We all grew up
Life was full of colors
Friendship was real
Love was pure
But everything faded with this tag of being 'Mature'
CHILDHOOD - Just a word to say
But holds thousands of memories in it
Undoubtedly those were the best memories we keep
Thinking about all those days we cry
There is a child still alive in us
And never let it die
