Moments & Memories


Personal picture



















Memories nudge me
To lazy afternoons
When I was immature
And Playful
Dancing on stage
Camping in the Sun
Rolling on grass
Was so much fun
Hiding in the Moonlight
Learning to fly a kite 
Avoiding Homework
Friends by my side
Bouncing on my bed
Jumping over barbed wire
Stories before bed time
Picnic by garden fire
Love was yet to happen
Dreams were still true
Childhood memories
Take me back with you
             ~
Note: This picture is special because it takes me back to my
childhood: when life was carefree and I was careless.
