nights you kept drawing
walks to the swing parks
running after dragonflies
falling in muddy ditches
crying for the lollipops
begging to avoid school
laughing at littlest tickles
playing with street puppies
asking too many questions
always wanting to hear tales
running throughout the day
pillow-fighting with siblings
hugging mom before bedtime
tirelessly trying to count stars
watching cartoons all day long
hating to do the homework
picking flowers from the garden
throwing stones at trees
eating mangoes from a bucketful
playing pranks on friends
games you wish never stopped
naps were the ever favorite
dreams of doing this and that
aspiring to grow up real soon
now I wish I had not
