Never ever to return I didn’t realise!
‘Moments’ that shaped my today,
Experiences that enriched my way
A fleeting childhood with siblings,
A sidelong path to discover things,
A raucous time trying to cope,
A gloomy phase filled with hope.
Those endearing seconds of pedestal glory,
A wait for another day, another story
Blowing trumpets of fiddle achievements,
For they never cost a dime or cents
The share of smiles when gossip broke,
A secure mind defying the cloak,
The agonizing loss of material stuff,
On turn, becoming the butt of bluff.
Being as buoyant as a small yacht,
Fearless in the sea, until caught.
Being a loyal mate as a connecting calf,
The resonant mirth still makes me laugh!
Oh the glorious moments… do linger on,
Relish them, for they soon will be gone!
