### LASTING AND LOST FOREVER!!

I remember..
I still remember..
though it was a long time back,
I still have it in my stack..

I remember. .
the hands that held me whenever i walked,
with a tight hold, making sure that i never balked. .
the plans that i made without flaws,
the walls and gates i had jumped across. .

the tunes that made me dance,
the scribblings and everything i made, being referred as masterpiece at once. .
the fantasies i had gone. .

the friends who sought me whenever and wherever i hid,
the teddy that all the time accompanied. .

the claps that cheered me,
the laughs for my childish jokes,
the swings that made me go high,

the clarity of my own eyes,
the acclaims for all my activities,
the food that ensured me health at the least,
the sleep that gave me the peace. .

I remember,
being active and creative,

I remember,
having friends, with whom fights are the only thing that doesn't last,
having well-wishers, for whom my wishes and views accounted foremost,
having an audience, to whom even my dream talk was the speech at its best. .

I remember,
being appreciated,
being successful,
being clear in mind,
and being light at heart. .

I remember,
feeling health, character. . . . and LIFE!!

But still,
i couldn't remember,
the place i had taken the diversion,
the time i had gone through the inversion. .
the moment that had upturned every single thing. .

Cos' childhood is not something to be considered as a memory or be referenced in past tense. .
it's just the precedence of our present. .
it's still what we are and who we are. .

Echoing with the strings of my heart-felt yearnings,
"Give me some sunshine,
Give me some rain,
Give me another chance,
I wanna grow up once again"
