Little Fairy Tale
As I write this little fairy tale,
I think about the past & wail.
Those days of happiness have gone somewhere,
And I struggle to find them everywhere.
Kisses & hugs & smiles we had,
Thinking about it makes me go mad!
Little things made me happy then,
I thanked God & said amen.
Times have changed now,
And I question thou?
Will those people I love come back?
Will the time go back?
Now I sit alone & think,
Tears fall down when I blink.
I miss being a toddler,
Now am busy earning dollar.
Princesses and dragons,
Horses pulling wagons.
All have gone missing,
Though I keep searching.
Now that I have grown big,
All the money I dig.
Innocence has left away,
Becoming rich is the new way.
Chocolates & cookies have gone,
Tablets & syrup in the closet lay on.
Then, hide & seek was my favorite game,
Climbing high in society is the new aim.
Tick tock tick tock the clock goes,
Years gone by very close.
You’re a big girl now daddy says,
I know I have to go a long way.
Friends & fun & parties now,
Mean is the world I know how.
Keeping the good old memories safe in a box.
Someone at the door knocks.
Work is waiting; the bosses bark,
Listening to this I get ready to embark.
Those pretty days have gone,
And won’t come back even when its dawn.
I accept the bitter truth & walk,
That’s how life is I talk.
Back to reality I came then,
Little Fairy tale was over when !!
