Jog down memory lane

Let's take a jog down memory lane
see if our experiences are the same.

How often do you sit and stare at the falling rain;
or look above and appreciate the flying plane?
How often have you called someone by their nickname
or scream at cars racing down the lane?
How often have you had dinner on a sloping chair,
or have someone complain about your messy hair?
How often have you received your bottle with flowers,
or laugh when something sour someone consumes?
How often have you cycled along the beach,
or compete with someone at arcade games?
How often have you enjoyed the breeze at the place where the lion spits
or wrestle someone off their seat?
How often do you climb endless steps to reach the top,
or have someone walk you down a slope to a stop?
How often have you had someone wipe your sweaty face
or jog with someone who helps you keep pace?
How often have you found someone mysterious,
or find that they are simply hilarious?
How often have you had a surprise,
or get others to sing a song after a few tries?
How often do you hear of fairy tales,
or get diahorrea from too many beers?
How often have you an argument,
or sat down to discuss the government?
How often do you have a long barbeque,
or waited for the bus in a long long queue?
How often do you meet someone who inspires you,
or simply someone who angers or bully you?
How often do you make others laugh at meetings,
or get kicked for forgetting?
How often do you feel someone understands you
or not know what it is you should do?
How often do you feel you are supported emotionally
or feel for others affectionately?
How often do you receive endless questions
or obtain patient answers?
How often do you feel happy,
or simply just feel grumpy?
How often do you sit and read books like pride and prejudice
or lie back and listen to music like those from Pavarotti?
How often have you been to the zoo,
or stare at pictures having nothing to do?
How often do you cause a traffic jam at the go-kart,
or feel upset when the time comes to part?
How often do you feel you do not know when to trust,
or that your whole world is going bust?
How often does your heart skip a beat,
or feel like you can't take breathe?
How often do dream of funny things,
or hear someone sing?
How often do you assemble food,
or hear someone say you are good and have them affect your mood?

How often....

Its a good poem. Make it happen with the person whom you shared your experiences with.
