A new leaf when turns into a plant
Scriptures when the priest does chant
When a little baby breaks into a smile
When a model does walk in her style.
When mother gives a hug with a kiss
When father’s praise you never miss
When grandmom tells her tales at night
And with grandad you have a mock fight.
When a bride walks up to her groom
When kids decorate their new room
When festivities are just around
When a Cricket match is on the ground.
When with friends, a lively goal you score
When fun and laughter is in store
When kites are flying in the air
When raindrops fall on your face bare
When sun shines on the tall treetops
At morn on leaves are shiny dew drops
When a colorful flower on a tree blooms
When a rainbow in front of you looms.
As you sail through the days, you know
The Joy’s of life are those that show
That fills our heart with hope and care
And love and faith it sure does share.
