Today walking on these busy streets,
Across the hazy smoke I see. 
A blurred imagery of what I was once,
An image faded of griefs weighing tonnes.

The "runs" after those falling kites,
Following those butterflies with colors bright.
The fighting for pencils, the crying for toys,
Climbing trees and jumping with joys.

The eyes sparkling with millions of dreams,
Few fulfilled rest lost in swifting time-streams.
The tranquilizing raindrops, tiny gifts from heaven, 
The colorful boats 'sailing' on waters uneven. 

Here I am, moving, toxicated with desires, 
Still holding onto memories like ashes of fire.
