I Wish….

Portrait of a girl holding a parasolI wish I could go back to the time
When,
“Getting High” meant “On a Swing”
When,
“Drinking” meant “Lemonade”
When,
Dad was the only “HERO”
When,
“Love” was “Mom’s Hug”
When,
Dad’s shoulder was “the Highest place on Earth”
When,
Our Worst Enemies were “our Siblings”
When,
The only thing that could “Hurt” was a “Skinned Knee”
When,
The only things “Broken” were our “Toys” and
When,
“Goodbyes” only meant “Till Tomorrow”
As a child always used to wonder that when I grow up, everything will be as per my wishes and under my control! What an illusion!  I cherish my childhood.  😦
