If Only

If Only

1 min 238 1 min 238

If only I could get back those days,


Where, my hungry tummy saw my


Innocent eyes searching for my mother;


Where bruises showed up on my knees every


Alternate day, on account of falls at the playground.


Those bruises, today I realize, hurt much


Less than the nostalgia at present. Those 


Unforgettable rainy days, where packed in


A sack like yellow raincoat, I would go to school.


How I wish those days were mine again!


If only "baba" again could pretend to be a horse,


On whom, I would ride and go about the house.


If only I could mix flour and water together


In a bowl, to feed my dolls every night.


If only I could fall again and just bruise my


Knees, with my dreams intact. If only,


Fall was measured as a physical fall still.


If only I could again rush to "baba" to get my shoes polished.


If only I could again play with my kitchen set.


If only "maa" made me tea every evening.


How I wish those day were back!
