Childhood

Poem By Ella Goodman

Life blossoms and it's childhood years they say,
So mild and vulnerable little ones when they smile in gay.
Knowing no worries, crying aloud, faltering at first steps,
Holding on to the finger tips walking in shaky gait.

Ages of man dissected by years,
From childhood to boyhood,
Manhood to old age.
We all thus migrate through the stages,
Donning the hat named by years.
Though often till the last breath of life,
The child in us ever lingers.

But brethren we are, measured and weighed,
Living a life as terms dictate,
Of outward show and mechanised feel,
That the child in us we hate to reveal.

But what's the shame to tame the child,
Purge the soul in tendered smiles,
In heart of child they say God reside,
The innocence and mirth fill all with light
So nurture the child that peeps in within,
Celebrate the youth of soul evergreen.
Childhood can never be marked by years,
For ever on we are child at heart.

One Love

If only dreams would have been mine,
Broken pieces turned whole again,
There beyond the yonder shores,
Once again you stood by thine...

Song

I hear some music from a far off land,
Distant voices in chorus sing song,
Oh! The symphony resonates through air,
Sweet melody play so fair.

Silent Drops

All night it rained
It rained indeed hard
In my sleep I still could hear the drops

Dream

She dreamed of paradise,
She dreamed of world full of butterflies,
Slipping off to sleep every now and then,
She slept to dream of paradise....

Lost Without You

I do not know why I love you,
The look in your eyes, or glow of your face,
That draws me to you..
I do not know why I love you! !
