If only you were here !

This wonderful writing exercise at Write Tribe requires us to post any creative literary piece of work in exactly 100 words. This week's Prompt is given by Kajal Kapur of Rainbow Hues - " if only you were here"....

If only you were here,
I would teach you to dream….
No worries, nothing to fear,
Only eyes full of gleam…

So much to explore, so much to do
So many things you’d love to learn
So much to discover, you’ve no clue
This or that, which way to turn…

Questions to fire, answers to get
All forgotten in a day’s play…
You haven’t learnt all you can, yet
The rules of life, you must obey…

All said and done, it’s wishful thinking
You wouldn’t come, even if you could
I imagine, without blinking,
What you could’ve been, my childhood!


I am linking this to 100 Words on Saturday - 5 at Write Tribe.
