Those were the best days of my life

Those were the best days of my life
Singing along with you; getting drenched in the rains
Yelling out loud and being insane
Splash of water; sprinkles of mud
Whistle of the Romeo and wink of the stud;
Who cared; who looked
We didn’t we were hooked
to the flight and to the daze
to the freedom; to the days;
The best days of my life

Yummy fritters and runny chai
Bite after bite and sigh after sigh
Making circles from the vapour
Making boats from the paper
Sitting at the stall for hours
Rechristening the stall as ours
Gaping at the roads; looking at the rains
Days spent at our adda
The best days of my life

Loud giggles at the boys;
Hidden snigger and the joys
Of white looks and paled faces
Shocked eyes and red gazes

Sprinting with you across town
Dancing with you like a clown
The Shoos and Shaas of aunties at the movies
Getting a lecture about being a girl and our duties
O how shameful you are a girl!
Showing them the tongue and taking a royal twirl
The carefree days beyond gender, age and hurls
The best days of my life

Running at you after each hiccup
Hiding behind you at each stickup
Crying on your shoulders over each mark
Picking up a fight for each remark
Against you, against me, against us
You being the calm one and me a big fuss
Holding your hands; tugging at your fingers
Memories of growing up.. still lingers
Etched in my heart forever and ever
Hoping to go back;
Hopping and going back
In those unforgettable days
Those were the best days of my life
