I wish!

I wish I was a kid still...
I could watch the rain from my old window sill..

If only I had the access to the past...
I could race ahead of everyone just so fast..

Pity that wouldnt have made difference to our fortunes...
We would still be singing to the destiny`s drums and tunes..

So when I brood what I wish the most ever...
It is to reclaim my innocence,I wish I would have lost never..

To cry out to my mum,when I am in trouble...
To keep dad unaware about a mischief,a bursting bubble..

I long for that smell of my old house and the rusted gates...
I never imagined that I would no longer climb atop to reach to the dates..

Home is where our people are,not any house alone...
We spread ourselves too thin,and miss the tip of the cone..

The plains and the dust I brought along...
How heat or sweat never interrupted,rain forced us to broke into a song..

The sound,sights and smell I long for are still there,lost in memories...
But the senses are no longer of a boy,who was the chief of all mischeavious coteries..

Silly games have turned into greed and gratification...
Oh how I wish to trade my money for my childish imagination..

I wish,they quickly invent time travel...
So I can go back and again play in the dirt and gravel..

Time is cruel,with its own devilish whims and pace...
Better make peace with it though,life is not a race..
