On the beach I run,
like some one crazed,
to catch the sun..and the rain.
I splash in the water,
jump into the waves,
like hugging a dear friend.
From the sandcastles on the beach,
to owning a villa with a private reach,
from lugging that school bag,
and fighting over a tiffin,
To growing up and taking your friends,
for five star stint.
It was your favourite flavour of Ice- cream,
to day its the car that you drive,
takes the precedence.
Matching a pair of correct socks,
was maybe the most difficult puzzle,
today, the right tie for every occasion,
a must for your living.
A kid in me still leaps out,
but is the drowned,
often by my own shouts.
I don't remember when I laughed
so hard that I cried,
I don't remember when was the last I just slept,
and did not cry.
This growing up has ripped,
the spirit inside me to love,
the very life that I had hoped to live!
