Bubbly baby’s progress defines
growing up milestones
painted in playful contours
in a blissful innocent world.
Teenage years chart a new course
mark the many firsts…a date, a kiss
romantic crush or rebellious streak
friends and ambition play a pivotal role
zeal to accomplish inks the milestones.
With a step into the professional world,
life ebbs into a comfort zone
many settle to the society’s norms
honor the events that unfold in due course
targets at work and family goals, outline the milestones.
Fading twilight waits for the ebony sky
to move on, into a destination unknown.
A glance into life’s rear view mirror reflects
celebration of life with its many milestones.
The heart whispers a thanksgiving prayer!
