The message

When a baby is born, he adds joy to the family.

Epitome of grace and class, poised and savvy,

He keeps smiling at the messages

He receives directly from heaven.

 

The winged angels keep whispering

In his soft ears, ‘be good, do good.

In times of despondency, lose not hope,

Keep smiling for all will be fine.

 

As the child grows, he is as lovely as

The crown of a youthful palm tree.

With a heart glowing with innocence,

Joy, compassion and understanding,

He treats all as equal for the message says

Love thy neighbor as yourself.

He gives, he shares, he laughs and he cries

In the company of dear ones for love

Is the only guiding force he knows.

 

Adulthood comes galloping like a horse

And he reads messages coming from

His own heart, clear and simple……

Reap the fruits of your toilsome effort,

Steal not, kill not, lie not,

Be neither the adulterer nor the hypocrite.

 

Old age is another mirror reflecting the past.

He who has worked hard will rest well,

Says the message, loud and clear……

We are all birds of passage

And planet earth is but one destination.

Those who create ills on earth

Will wait for death with anxiety

And those who spread love and light

Will set sail for eternity

With a smile broad.
