Sweet Nostalgia

Would somebody please be kind enough 
to take me back to when
Joy was a huge ice-cream cone
in my small hand?

When I thought God sent the ice-cream 
truck from the heavens to the land.

When hatred was a soft push with a simple,
"Hey, I was standing here first!"

When day-dream was a nap on the sun-kissed
floor, with a huge post-meal belly.

When pain was a brain-freeze or a toothache. 

When I believed that if I ever had a stable income
like Daddy, I'd spend it on candy.

When coloured sprinkles were magical
and each grid in that cone had a
Different Story, depending on which one 
my finger was placed on each time.

When Vanilla hated Chocolate and
choosing Strawberry was a common ground.

When regret was not getting to the drops of
melted ice-cream before they reached their 
demise and had a Great Fall. 

When the definition of a tease was:
"I've got two flavours on my cone,
what have you achieved in your life?"

When a long day was having to spend three
long hours in the sun, licking sweet ecstasy
until my tongue became numb.
