Changes

By , bronx, NY
Do you remember those days?
When we were young,
How we use to play together
Every mornings and evenings.

It seemed like yesterday
And how time goes fast
I remember every secret we said
And how we used to talk about who’s dating who in school.

The childhood world of making bubbles playing with our Barbie dolls,
That you called yours Minnie and I called mine Tina.
Those summer days of eating that delicious Ice cream from uncle’s Sam ice cream truck, that made a cling, cling sound.
From all the chasing of mosquitoes, and listening to the birds whistling softly at the sky
Or sometimes sit on the neighbors stairs and talk about being a fainted princess and how the prince will rescue us from the evil dragon with a true kiss.
And do you remember how we also talked about our crush. And how when we grow up will marry him and have 3 children.
Or do you remember, one winter that it was so cold like an Ice Block, and mom told us not to go outside but we sneaked out and went to Martha’s party.

But those days have all disappeared
And we grew up, as all children do
Until the day we all grew
Don’t want to play any of the childhood fool
Because now we see is not cool
And we all realize that what we did was the childhood un-understanding world of crying, crawling, screaming and shouting of all childhood behavior
Because, we have changed and all grown
