A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

Staying Young!


She wants to go to the Park-
Demanding. I give in.
It’s that little girl again,
I see, on the swing!

Hair flying behind,
Screaming her way to the top!
Hooting all the way back,
Egging me on, to push
Her further up!

Indulgent, I give in,
With a warning:
The last time, now…!

And… as she comes down
(Having gone further up!)
She leaps off
And lands
On me!
Knocking the breath out-
Of both of us!

Instinctively, I hold her,
For I hold my universe
In the circle of my arms!

Giggling, rubbing noses-
Breath mingles!
What a moment!

The magic intensifies
When I thank God, that
We never changed inside;
We never grew older;
Than our beautiful

Laughing around us!
