My Childhood


my childhood was the time when i was innocent
when the world seemed to be fair
when my universe was around my toys

my childhood was the time when 9i lived in dreams
when everyone was selfless
when everyone appeared to be a friend

my childhood was the time when my life was full of colours
when sorrows never knocked my door
when smile was gift presented to everyone

my childhood was the time when love was pure
when there were no obligations
when tenderness prevailed

my childhood was the time which is long gone
tears flow from my eyes when i go back in my childhood
my childhood will never come back but
the child in me will never go

    Very good Poem. I like how you said the child in you will never go. I wonder if I could use this poem in school for a homework to say what this poem tells you]]? (Report) Reply

    Exactly how I felt, I had to lose my childhood at age eight when my parents were going through divorce, and I was the weirdo or freak to the other kids, but the child in me never left, insults were just another unique complement to me (Report) Reply

    Childhood is the best stage of life for any human being. Fun, carefree, innocence, security and protection and lots of love from elders. As you grow up, you miss all those nice things.Well written.
    If I may say so, avoiding repetition of childhood could make your sweet little poem still better. (Report) Reply

    Dear Jahanvi
    Recollecting the vivid childhood is common nature for every one I think but when you think about the later stage we all want to get back the child hood.
    So many poets narrated so many poems very effectively about this subject. You too very effectively expressed it.
    Congratulation.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
