Childlike Memories

We never park our memories, they walk in our hearts like a child,
They even run, crawl and dance when we smile.
Sometimes, they become stubborn and make us nostalgic,
Fabricating our life around them is pure magic.


  1. nostalgia is priceless yaar...and i guess the part that many of us miss is the innocence and the joy that comes with living in your own world :) as we grow up we start trading is the first thing to go on the block...:( anyway...guess which is my fav Enigma number :) :)

  2. Ahh! Beautifully written. Memories are so priceless. Loved the last line so much :)

    Saru, when I am trying to share your posts on FB, the first comment of the post is visible on FB but not the post. Or else try to use AddThis widget. I hope it works.

  3. that is such an interesting thought!

  4. You should publish a book of your poems. Bestseller! =)

  5. yes's memories that makes our life special:)

  6. Nostalgic poem Saru, written very well...

  7. Truly said. Good memories give us smile to our face and bad memories give us pain to our heart.

    Very well said :)

  8. and the way you create magic with your words :)

  9. I think you beautifully play with the 'words'like a seasoned magician.Your description of memories
    is marvelous.Our mind is like a tape recorderr.Not only the memories are stored into it,but we can play reviving any memory we like.

    Many many thanks, Saru for the nice presentation.
    My good wishes to you for Ganesh chaturathi and Id.

  19. So very true ! All will change or fade in this world but one thing left ,our memories may it be sweet or this line...they walk in our hearts like a child,
    They even run, crawl and dance when we smile.

  20. So few lines that say SO much ~ this is truly your gift, dear Saru & Red Handed eloquently summarized it!

    I *love* this one because it is so true and something everyone can relate to :) The first line is BRILLIANT! ♥

  21. memories....does that word produce a lump in your throat too? and then a smile playing on the lips :)

  22. That's something sweet to memorize whenever memory shows it stubbornness...:-)

  42. wow:) loved it :) beautiful memories help us having a beautiful happy life :) loved the last line :)

  43. I remember a lot! Maybe too much. My parents and teachers were really good to me. I do have some memories that are not the best. My first crush when I was in 4th grade passed away. He had heart problems. I also struggled in school. They talked about holding me back. Something must of clicked because I went on to get my masters degree.

  44. Beautiful....
    This is one theme I can keep coming back to again and again and never be saturated.

    I had once written something along the same lines. Try and give it a read. You might find an echo of your sentiments -

  45. That is a very beautiful thought!

  46. Hey Saru, I never read much as more inclined towards Photographs, Painting, Sketches etc...
