Poetry - my silent dreams

A Change

I have travelled to many places
and some I want to visit again
But I can never go back to my childhood
so I must be travelling some place else

But do I wish to return to my childhood
If I ever had that chance
Where the days seem longer
And where worries hardly exist.

It has made me who I am today
From head to the smallest toe
When it ended, I do not know
But then my grown-up life began

Never forgotten and can't be undone
My childhood isn't anymore
But the memories will never be gone.
