Across a lifetime

Let me walk a little back in time,
When life was about nursery rhymes,
A little jingle here and there,
And meals were a big affair.

Let me walk a little back in time,
When dainty dresses were a fuss,
When muddy shoes and messy hair,
Were not matters to discuss.

Let me walk a little back in time,
When holding Dad’s finger was a shield,
With head held high, walked around the block,
No one dared to push or yield.

Let me walk a little back in time,
When falling of the swing was the biggest hurt,
When tears were a fountain along with laughter,
Heartaches and breaks were yet unheard.

Today there are two hands that hold,
My fingers are big and your hand’s are small,
I still walk around the block,
In hope to keep your heart secure.

Today there is still a bicycle fall or two,
Where my kiss works like your Grand Father’s used to,
Roles have changed but the moments are same,
Be it past, present or in future too.
