Looking myself before,
Cute and innocent in the picture,
I remembered those days with a smile,
Reminisced the unforgettable part of my life

 Looking myself at the camera,
Standing outside our old veranda,
With a dress so white but tiny,
Fit for a naughty little baby.

My hair tied separately in pony tails,
Not wearing any shoes or slippers,
Legs apart under the heat of the sun,
Childhood memories are so much fun.

Chubby looking pretty Mary,
Showing her natural beauty,
Smiling with toothless mouth,
Clapping hands heard by the happy crowd.
