Back to Childhood Days...

Photobucket

Come on people move
For childhood is calling
time to get up and groove
there is no time for stalling

Enjoy the warm sunny day
and chase all of your blues away
this is a day that is so enthralling
listen, as your childhood is calling

old men sit and are soon recalling
and slowly as their hair is graying
they hear the siren song of youth playing
saying that their childhood is calling

the time is slipping away so quickly,
so run fast and catch the dying sun
for childhood is calling
and your life has just begun

  11. A child grows to be a child again
    Walking through the narrow paths of life....
    There was no time to recall childhood
    Until reach old age and act like a child......
    Beautiful picture..! :)
    Thanks Sia..
