Under moonlit skies merry whispers bloomed;
Our thoughts and dreams in gay abandon groomed.
A smile for today; a prayer for tomorrow.
Radiant faces; untainted by deep sorrow.
A skip and a hop; careless happy feet.
A brazen wanderlust; fear didn’t dare defeat.
Beyond horizons young hopes soared.
Unfettered spirits like lions roared.
Arms stretched high like fledgling boughs;
We outreached destinies to sift and rouse.
Striking high notes to a juvenile beat;
Our robust hearts scarcely knew retreat.
We skimmed and searched for ventures bright.
No shadows dark scarred our effervescent light.
Youth was the time of gaiety and bloom.
The sweetest spell around life’s grand ballroom.
