Am I Still Your Child (Backstory)

I grew up under your careful watch, wondering who you were

the experiences of my childhood growth is now a colorful blur

little parts appear sometimes as lessons to apply

though some were shown and never taught, so I usually sit asking why

your older now and let out sighs whenever I ask you questions 

it mostly ends with your hand on my shoulder, the gestures are sharp and mild

I smile knowing that when your eyes meet mines, your asking am I still your child.
