Nostalgic weather

Looking out the windowpane
through worlds of cloud and shine
familiar impulses through my nerve
a feel of excitement, a feel of sorrow.

Beauty and grace found in all
today I looked out my windowpane
I saw rains, clouds, grass and trees
tender emotions floods my face
sentiments of past brings me memories
delightful, yet distant
oh how I wish to see my yesterday
feel the feeling of childhood
pure excitement being a part of it
rain, clouds, grass and trees  

Now I reach for that past, that breeze, that happiness
Only to hit adulthood
A barrier stood before me
The barrier grows larger 
As I grow bigger
Until only memories remain of a certain past, 
of a certain child playing under 
the rain, clouds, grass and trees
