The Longing - A Poem About Childhood days


Each night I sit by my window alone,

I'm always staring at the beautiful sky.

Somehow it ease my troubled heart,

And giving comfort to my weary soul.

Beautiful scenery flashes to my mind,

I'm chasing those dragonflies around,

I'm running with other kids in the field,

Like a sweet little girl playing around.

Remembering my happy childhood days,

Where moments filled with giggling smiles,

Enjoying my joyful moments with other kids,

Playing all day, without care in the world.

How i missed those moments in my life,

Where everything is just simple and plain.

I just want to feel those moments again,

I wanna be that little girl again...

I think we all feel like that at times.

Oh how wonderful to be carefree. I love the picture you paint in my mind.

Thanks for sharing.

Wow what a lovely poem! Brought me back to my old days when I was a kid running around with my friends and not worrying about anything.
