When We Grow Up

Dedicated to my Fab4 🙂 x

Ginz&Tonic

When we grow up
We will go shopping
And drink tea from china teacups in quaint teashops
Lunch in bistros and cafes around the globe
Wear patent red heels
With bags from boutiques around our feet
Filled with goodies for the boys and their families
To take home
Our nails will be manicured
Hair coiffured
Tables laden with sumptuous treats and
finest wines
And the frames on the dresser will be filled
With photographs
With smiling faces
With happy times
With memories of today.

Memories of today; the best time of all
When we have nothing
When the pennies are scarce
And food is rationed
Holidays are non-existent
And only essential clothes are on our backs
With holes in our socks and shoes
Letting water in
And travel is just a dream
Nails are chewed to the quick
And health is claiming her spoils
Yet even so in the stillness…
