The Long Road

A journey planned down the road,

The ocean following us side by side,

All the laughter and the fun giggles,

The noise indoors,

The journey together which holds dear,

The confusion and chaos of losing our way,

Dozens of paper maps and virtual maps at display,

That picnic stops for hunger,

That brown basket which has our delicious sandwiches,

The excitement of the journey ahead,

The wild goose chase that we all love,

It’s the journey that matters,

Oh, how I miss those days,

As the destination awaits…


The Image

The young girl smiled looking at herself in the mirror,

She went back and forth wondering how can the other one look so similar,

Shy and innocent she played with her image by actions,

Her opposite image would mimic her,

She would laugh and smile in excitement,

She wore a crown and a pretty dress,

She was the princess one time,

The other time a warrior fighting in a battle,

She was cooking at her toy kitchen one time,

The other time she would show her doll to her reflection,

So innocent and playful was she,

She would turn towards the mirror and sleep at night…

Past Memories

I turn those pages which hold your memories,

The album is weathered and old,

Page by Page I feel your presence,

Which remind me of our time together,

Our laughter and the silly things we would do,

As children the mischief we would get through,

The swing I would sit on and you would push me,

The tree house that we built together,

Promised to move in there when we get old,

You would share your chocolate with me,

I would let you comb my dolls hair,

I would cook for you and we would have tea,

Those were those days which now remain a memory….

Those Days Of Fun

I remember those days,

The excitement the wait,

To spend a day at an amusement park,

The joy rides, the Ferris wheel and the train,

Screaming loud scared and afraid,

Sounds and music and flashing lights,

Pedals and buttons,

The coin operated amusement rides,

To the merry-go-rounds and the bumping cars,

The taste of the cotton candy to the saltiness of the popcorn,

Pony rides and horse rides,

To the dangerous roller coasters,

The enjoyment and the laughter,

The innocence of a child,

If I could go back in time would relive it all over again….
