Fly along my dear friend,
fly with me again around the next bend,
I’ve never learnt to live without you,
and I don’t want to know how ’twas with you,
Remember the times, we’ve floated baloons,
caught grasshoppers and poked a lizard’s tail,
‘Twas fun wasn’t it, lil ‘ol childhood,
filled to the brim with memories,
I remember once we had to wait a lot,
was a drab sunny day if my memory’s correct,
I would sit and gape,
you’d sit and gape,
in to the whole wild world,
wild it really was, ain’t it !
Walking on walls and jumping into neighbours’ water tanks,
there were a couple of others too with us then, i guess
Then once,you gave me a book,
and it got me off the hook,
I forgot you,
Sorry! Well, I don’t want to know how ’twas with you
’cause, maybe we’re still thick friends,
as thick as tomato sauce?
or maybe as much as the new gum father bought home once,
Fun wasn’t it jumping with my brother on the bed,
Man! we really did bounce,
remember how we had to do the kneel-down-for-10-minutes punishment,
for every single time mother caught us !
Well, that was boring, ain’t it !
And the time, when grandfather promised to buy me any toy
at the nearby church festival,
if only I’d sit still for five minutes,
I never got any toy, sigh !
Funny, all those things coming back to me,
as I look into your eyes now, my dearest,
I don’t know how much I love you,My dear dear mirror.
