childhood memories

childhood memories (Photo credit: brainblogger)

Coloured blocks stacked
On cream carpet
Half past four
It’s time for jam and toast
Limericks and lessons
Hopscotch on the lawn
All these precious memories
The ones you love the most

As the sun is setting
Playing cards
Out on the porch
Fireflies are lighting up the sky
Sleepy heads are nodding
Will to stay awake
As the time for slumber
Gathers softly nigh

Wrapped up in a quilt
Bed-light bright
Beside your head
Fantastical stories being read
Kiss upon the cheek
Reaching for the light
Gaze now from a mother’s eyes
And nothing need be said
