Remember Childhood’s Yesterday

Posted in notes by Imam Zaid Shakir on 2019-11-13 Thumb

The childish games we used to play,
Those playground romps of push and shove,
The carefree days of puppy love.

How ‘bout those summers long ago
When lazy days were all we’d know,
Now that we’re grown why does it seem,
Our happy days are in our dreams?

So close your eyes let’s take a trip,
Let’s climb a tree, let’s skinny dip,
Let’s rope the laughter once free,
And bring it back for all to see.

Don’t let this troubled world erase
The beauty of your smiling face;
The key life in hearts abounds,
With love and faith it will be found.
