I want to be a little girl again – A short poem!

Spread the love

It was my 34th birthday last month. Yeah, I just said that because I don’t believe in concealing my age as it’s just a number. I still have a child inside me and I would never kill it in the hustle bustle of life. It still finds happiness in the smallest of things and winks at me whenever it rains and convinces me for drenching and dancing crazily forgetting everything and living the moment.

Trust me, these little joys of life are always beautiful and soul-satisfying. Though, life has changed to every possible extent, I’m no longer a free bird who would fly anytime anywhere. Now, there are lot of responsibilities to be catered, concerns for everyone around, professional commitments, raising responsible and healthy kids and so much more.

Amidst all this, sometimes I feel lost, seeing my kids growing up transports me to my childhood days when I used to be the fruit basket of everyone’s eye in the family. Miss those days and the carefree lounging around. So, on this birthday of mine, I wrote a poem for myself and for all the lovely ladies reading this, a wish, that we all have somewhere in the hidden corner of our hearts. Hope you can hear me and relate.

I want to be a little girl again

Relaxing in Mum’s lap, sharing all my pain

Holding Papa’s finger while crossing the lane

Playing and jumping with my brother in the rain

I want to be a little girl again

Throwing tantrums during mealtimes

Eating only what my heart desires

Feeling pampered day and night

Staying everyone’s heart’s delight

Those carefree giggles, those sibling fights

Those counting stars in the night

Lazing around in the evenings with buddies

Sans tensions and worries

Engrossing in stories of knights and fairies

Dozing off in warriors’ glories

Merrying birthdays with family and peers

Celebrating results with so much of cheer

Whirling and twirling in frill frocks

Gleefully flaunting those lacy socks

Endless babbling basking under the sun

Sharing tiffins and mimicking was the real fun

Waking up daily by Mum’s cuddles and kiss

When meeting Santa was my only wish

No place for ego, drama, conceits

A life quite simple and full of peace

Sobbing and waving at parents at the school gate

Vacations and holidays were the most desired wait

Fight with a best friend was the biggest pain

Yes, I want to be a little girl again!!!

I see you want to feed and care
And keep your inner child
I too think that’s important, though
It’s just a little wild ?
I think there is a way to make
Our inner children tick
I think that method’s poetry –
I think you’ve found the trick!

Hey Vartika, I guess this is the feeling within every girl who’s a wife or mother today. Long time back, I wrote a poem on similar thinking

It just striked a chord in my heart. Seriously, being young at heart helps a lot. And you rightly said Age is just a number!!
