I tumbled down your lap,
And you threw me up in the air,
I touched the wind, the cloud, the sunshine,
As you brought me down the stairs.
Your loving , smiling eyes
My disheveled hair, how
I dwelt endlessly in your embrace,
Without worries, troubles or care.
“ It was time to go” you said one day.
‘Already’? I was quite taken aback.
And yet I was ready in my newfound look,
And desires in my backpack.
The gates opened, and I dared out,
What a maddening place is it?
The snarls and gnarls of life I saw,
The shove, the struggle, and deceit.
