It was my 34th birthday two weeks back. Yeah, I just said that as I don’t believe in concealing my age as it’s just a number. I still have a child inside me and I would never let it aloof in the hustle bustle of life. It still finds happiness in the smallest of things and winks at me whenever it rains and convince me for dancing crazily forgetting everything. Trust me, these little joys of life are always beautiful and satisfying.
Though, life has changed to every possible extent, I’m no longer a free bird who would fly anytime anywhere. Now there are lot of responsibilities to be catered, concerns for everyone around, workload, raising responsible and healthy kids etc. etc.
Amidst all this, sometimes I feel lost, seeing my kids growing up transports me to my childhood days when I used to be the fruit basket of everyone’s eye in the family. Miss those days and the carefree lounging around.
So, on this birthday, I wrote a poem for myself and for all the lovely ladies reading this. Hope you can hear my heart and relate.
Relaxing in Mum’s lap, sharing all my pain
Holding Papa’s finger while crossing the lane
Playing and jumping with my brother in the rain
I want to be a little girl again
Throwing tantrums during mealtimes
Eating only what my heart desires
Feeling pampered day and night
Staying everyone’s heart’s delight
Those carefree giggles, those sibling fights
Those counting stars in the night
Lazing around in the evenings with buddies
Sans tensions and worries
Engrossing in stories of knights and fairies
Dozing off in warriors’ glories
Merrying birthdays with family and peers
Celebrating results with so much of cheer
Whirling and twirling in frill frocks
Gleefully flaunting those lacy socks
Endless babbling basking under the sun
Sharing tiffins and mimickering was the real fun
Waking up daily by Mum’s cuddles and kiss
When meeting Santa was my only wish
No place for ego, drama, conceits
A life quite simple and full of peace
Sobbing and waving at parents at school gate
Vacations and holidays were the most desired wait
Fight with best friend was the biggest pain
Yes, I want to be a little girl again!!!
