hey cousin,
I perfectly do agree with you ... I long for all of that as well, especially now that university has started ... but I guess it's the foolish rhythm of modern life ...
Good luck

Beautiful piece, I especially like the ending, I could imagine this as a song, with the „I long“ slowly fading out …
I can relate to the message, although I wonder if we do not idealize childhood a bit too much, I for one cannot say that the only tears I cried as a child “were those of laughter and joy”. Still, it works in the context and for the message of the poem, and I do agree with that message. A parent-child love definitely is not the painful, heart-breaking torture which adolescent love between partners can be, those infinite regions of beauty and pain a child never dreamt could exist.
“a thousand tears to fall
unbidden from broken eyes.”
Wow, what a line. Beautiful poem.
