You set foot on an unknown path assuming
It would be lined with roses and poetry
It turned out it was not like honey and nectar
But you went on since it was a fact of life
You endured all the hardships on the way
The days without electricity
The floor flooded with water when it was pouring outside
The allocation of food and water
You lived and dreamed of a brighter future
Sustained by the fruits grown on the path
Oh how fresh and delighted and adorable
You sucked them in and overcame
All the adversities in life.
Happy 48th Anniversary to Mom and Dad!
