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.
