It Comes to surface when I am alone,
A reverie that takes me along..
to memories that are my life,
those moments which make me alive....

A nostalgic feeling drives me crazy,
I wanna be a baby, gonna be hazy..
Striving to get the toy that's not mine,
thriving to sleep in Mom's lap and 
fall in to dreams that shine...

It was good to be a child,
So protected, so safe, in the love and 
care so mild...
Don't know why we grow?, why we flow?
Along the idiotic calculations of life,
Which kills the innocence and purity of thy..

A prolonged mirage created of fake,
Its an Osmosis that makes me shake..
But I love this home coming of mine,
Which makes me nostalgic, united with what I am..
I feel sure..I feel fine..

  4. O yes gone are those days and today when I look at myself I am nowhere near to what I was. But that is the price we pay for growing up :) Price so heavy that what experience and understanding which we achieve look small sometimes. But then, we had our good days and now its time for us to let generation next flourish and for that we need to grow old and perish :)
