Lying in the bed of time,
Are the memories most fine,
Each night before I sleep,
All I wish for, is to take one last leap.
Mornings echoed with papa’s songs,
It is that, what my heart truly longs,
No one knew how life would unfurl,
All I wish for once more, is to be papa’s little girl.
There was something magical about lunchtime,
Lunchboxes made amma’s love outshine,
Every bite made me smile,
All I wish for once more is to walk the same mile.
Playing with dolls all afternoon,
Having an elder sister was such a boon,
Someone to always take the fall,
All I wish for once more, is time to stall.
My little brother was such a delight,
I don’t remember a single day without our silly fight,
The bond got stronger as we grew,
All I wish for is those memories to renew.
Every summer break was a new story,
We kids added to our nani’s glory,
The only time when getting fat was fun,
All I wish for is to play under the same sun.
I can’t travel back in time,
But can always cherish the memories that are just mine,
Time may have drifted us apart,
All I wish for is to keep these memories alive in my heart.
