Give a little time for the child within you..don’t be afraid to be young and free

Posted: May 13, 2010 in awwwww, Children, Family, Parents, Soch

Would you not love to be a child , back to the child hood when no tension nothing.. there should be this button in us, press kiya and roll back so many years..

The days when we all lived together, my grandparents, my chacha, aunt before they all left for United states, married and all.. the time when the clock went just past 5pm .. everyone running helter skelter cause Grandpa was to return home after work.. and I would keep doing what I am cause hey I was the pampered one … I would get all the attention, Daddy (grand pa), his driver , the gun man everyone would pamper me .. And then the Going for the tours of his.. to different villages and towns in punjab..

The school times the fighting over the silly erasers, especially the ones that were perfumed.. throwing a tantrum to get the pencil with rainbow colours and a eraser on the back or those curly ones .. and to get that particular pencil box with superman on it or spider man.. the sharpners especially the big plastic ones, in which you put the pencil and it hand a small handle to rotate , which sharpened the pencil.. and then to test the nib of pencil on your cheek to see if it was sharp enough as if we had to go to war…

Holidays were special too, cause you got to go different places, Dad use to get that travel expense thing (dont know whats it called), so different places to visit, I remember Papa taking us to Mumbai, Hajoor sahib, Gujarat, Manali and all over india.. the beautiful places we went and met so many people…

All those games we played.. the Langdi tang.. the tippy tippy tap.. The Oopar neeche.. the pithu garams.. Does anyone remember all that games.. The Chain chain something..

The above all came to mind when i heard this song.. Please everyone STOP EVERYTHING and listen to this .. close your eyes and let yourself be lost in the childhood, in the open fieldssss GIVE it a try ..

Give a little time for the child within you,

Give a little time for the child within you,
don’t be afraid to be young and free.
Undo the locks and throw away the keys
and take off your shoes and socks, and run you.
La, la, la…

Run through the meadow and scare up the milking cows
Run down the beach kicking clouds of sand
Walk a windy weather day, feel your face blow away
Stop and listen: Love you.

Roll like a circus clown, put away your circus frown
Ride on a roller coaster upside down
Waltzing Matilda, Carey loves a kinkatchoo
Joey catch a kangaroo, hug you.

Dandylion, milkweed, silky on a sunny sky
Reach out and hitch a ride and float on by
Balloons down below catching colors of the rainbow
red, blue and yellow-green: I love you.

Bicycles, tricycles, ice cream candy
Lollypops, popsicles, licorice sticks
Solomon Grundy, Raggedy Andy
Tweedledum and Tweedledee, home free

Cowboys and Indians, puppydogs and sandpails
Beachballs and baseballs and basketballs, too.
I love forget-me-nots, fluffernutters, sugarpops
I’ll hug you and kiss you and love you
La, la, la… Love you.
