And For All Those Known and Unknown To Us


Thirty seven years of togetherness
Dreams shared in secret wilderness
All started smooth
Pleasant and lot for soothing
Visions different
Path, though, the same
Daughter and son
With about two years in between
Two grandsons
Through daughter
Making meaningful
The purpose of living
As years passed
Frictions too set in
But the undercurrent love
Came in as lubricant
No great climbs
Nor steep slides
No appealing achievements
Nor dreadful failures
No threatening illness
Reasonably peaceful
And steady flow of life
Like a thin clean stream
With intermittent glittering
Under the bright lit clear sky
There is, however, a
Black cloud that
Makes our sky a bit dark
We pray intently
That let this cloud
Soon pass off
And make the sky
Bright as it used to be
Nothing less fine
But for this passing black cloud
On this day
Marking our marriage anniversary
We look forward ahead
More engulfing peace
More glowing health
More understanding love and
More wonderful events
For everyone in the family
And for all those known and unknown to us

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
