let’s hear a story of once upon a time…
when life was simple, unsoiled, no trace of grime
the oceans were clean and so were the rains
when life soared high in coloured marble-paper planes.
when vacations meant friends, fun and outdoor games
when laughs ensued on silly matters, not controlled by memes
when cousins and siblings spent nights giggling on the terrace
when dancing in the rains, splashing puddles felt joyous.
when the roadside lollipops tasted heavenly
when on holidays the hearts planned how to skip studies, cleverly
when grandma’s stories were lullabies to our ripening ears
when drizzle inspired the feet to dance not the eyes hide the tears.
when every occasion meant a gathering of family members
when lips didn’t master the art of smiling while the heart’s in embers
when on platinum nights amidst the fragrant blooms passionate souls strolled
when life didn’t pace but blissfully enjoyed every kiss of the Gold.
So here ends the story of once upon a time
when life was simple, unsoiled, no trace of grime.
