That was the childhood

That was the childhood,we shared our minuscule booty

To look after and save each other’s back,was our religious sacred duty.

We were happy in a moment next to the moment we were sad,

We did not hesitate to chill out,no matter however we were mad.

The last morsel was to be shared by one and all,

We had our own secret corners,no matter how big was the hall.

The tears were wiped away in a jiffy,

One who was upset could not stay so for long,

Loyalty was for each other,money could do us no wrong.

Dolls marriage,and ,carom,ludo,mud baked toys and races galore,

no thing lasted for long yet we were never bored.

A hug was all that was needed to mend the shattered,broken hearts,

Nothing,just nothing,no amount of hatred could torn us apart.

I miss those days as years pass by,

I long for you and all,whom I could say just mine.
