My last wish for now…

Now I would like to lie down and just stare.
Now since you are gone, my baby sister,
Suddenly I have got lot of time to spare.

I want to revisit all the moments we spent together.
Recreate or weave in, the childhood net once again.
The memories which have paled with passage of time,
I want to dig them out ,polish and reframe.

I wish I could cuddle you and hug you back,
Resolve all conflicts which were left unresolved.
Trust me I would do anything have you back,
Even if it means giving my life and luxuries away.

Why do we forget the innocence of childhood and grow ?
I wish I could go back into childhood and freeze the time there,
For now I would just like to lie down and stare…

*Note-Dedicated to my sister whom I lost due to Covid.
