The X and the O
Visited me yesterday
Said, they missed me
For the game of tic-tac-toe

We couldn’t then bid good bye
To the bygone childhood days
Sat again scribbling for hours
Midst the # on backyard’s clay

Loosing or winning, but giggling
Living again before they leave
Back to their lovely hut
And a life carefree

To spend their time with teens
Who, lost in their fresh dreams
In leisure yet engage
And carry the legacy to new age.

A colon, half a bracket…..
Was all that I could offer.
“C ya” said the parting glances
And ditto they responded..!!
And they left but still they stay !
