TO MY CHILDHOOD
As an archaeologist seeks in midst of vast ruin
the gold and silver coins of history,
I too seek my sweet childhood
in midst of my forgotten memory.
The golden and silvery days of my lost childhood
provide me with an eternal solace,
in midst of all exhaustion of my professional life
I breathe deeply in an open space.
The beauty to remain in childhood forever
can never be recognized until and unless
the child enters adulthood.
Time and age bring a child out of Almighty’s grace.
Though a person is an outcome of one’s childhood,
one wishes to move back again.
All growth and development
seem to be in vain.
