You know the game
Called Hide and Seek?
It is my favorite game
I play it in my sleep,
I race and run
As in my childhood days.
Yet now,
Hidden behind trees
I attempt to cheat time,
The clock is ticking
As my wrinkles are multiplying.

I am not ready
To erase my lifetime fantasies,
My memories cling on to
Girly dreams,
My soul craves for spring
Just when the world is blossoming.
