A Creative Challenge poem I did to the phrase: "oh how I miss it."
 



Good Things Come To Those That Wait 

~ 

Oh how I miss it 

childhood 

when everything was so carefree. 

You knew you were loved 

by a goodnight hug and 

a gentle kiss on your forehead. 

Your world was made right 

by Momma's sweet voice 

and tender hands. 

You were Daddy's little princess 

and Momma's little gem. 

Oh how I wish to 

turn back the hands of time. 

~ 

Oh how I miss it 

adolescence 

when you knew everything. 

The world was your oyster 

and you wanted to suck it dry. 

You were ready to take on anything 

with one hand tied behind your back. 

First kiss, first love. 

Loss of virginity, gain of maturity. 

Oh how I wish 

I knew then what I know now. 

~ 

Oh how I miss it 

adulthood 

where you learned 

the difference between 

fantasy and reality. 

You start a family 

hoping to outrun the past. 

You lose yourself 

to take on the labels 

of parent and spouse.
