Look what I found!

Yesterday,while browsing through my old notebooks, I found this small,pale piece of paper.And what did it hold-one of my most ignored poems that I must have written long time back in a fit of emotions and then forgotten about it!
I think I ought to give this one it's share of publicity.So,here it goes......

Life's Best Days

Sunny days,pleasant nights,
Lovely smiles,tender sights,
Heavenly moments,beautiful times,
Of lullabies and nursery rhymes,
And of innocent words and ways,
Formed the life's best of days!

Clumsy workers,naughty mimics,
Bounded by no hours,no ticks,
Little hearts that swiftly pound,
Always stuck to the playground,
When shrink,as their holders grow,
Wonder where childish days did go!

Stormy nights,cloudy days,
Devilish smiles,fiendish ways,
Heavy moments,guilty times,
Of selfish deeds and petty crimes,
Make you wonder when you sit alone,
Where are the life's best days gone?

When dolls fail to give you joys,
And coins and greens replace your toys,
And there's no fun, no pranks, no play,
And all you do is work all day,
And no chocolates and hugs in turn,
You wonder why childhood should go and never return!

hi..
I am the guy who wrote that "very very very mean post " about new age girls ... I think you should visit my blog again and check out the comments box wherein i have put up a Clarification for ppl like u who misunderstood wat i was trying to say.... I also replied to UR comment..
Anyways ... yup childhood was fun ....most of it due to the innocence of the age and da fact that life was simple , friends were truer and dere were fewer things to worry about.. But Youth has its own share of fun which i think you must have been dicovering or already discovered... All da best for eveything in your life.
keep visiting ...

starship,it's good to know that your baby pictures interest you(I don't find 'baby me' any worth it)

Dawn,perhaps childhood still dominated my life when I wrote this.Hence, the 'you' used in the poem.Thank You.

Vishal,I still have a lot to discover and I guess I am loving the process.Thanks.
