Dreamer of a chocolate place
Always stood second in a race
Eager to get a rainbow's gaze
I was the most notorious in my days
Buried sparrows which laid dead
in the backyard of my place
Attended the funerals of bees and butterflies.
Prepared meals for the pups I found
in the street or any road
provided shelters who hardly stayed
for a day or two leaving the tenant
homeless again .
Always danced in the rain
fed my mouth with the snow we had in winter days.
Tricked opponents in every game
be it a riddle, hide and seek or chain-chain .
What I wanted if someone asked,
more games to play and food from bazar
was all that mattered at that hour.
