Childhood Moments

A time when I was young and free
When I came tumbling down the stairs
Not one would scream if I spilt food
They laughed when I slipped off the chair
My skirt that hung above my knees
A cap that never stayed on me
A lollipop that messed my face
That sticky grin my mouth would give
My dad would hug me close and smile
When mom would pack my snack for break
And she would cry and let me go
But I would bravely run across
And come back loving mommy more
Those times are dear and always near
They are the days I cherish most.
