Year has passed
across seas you crossed
as a young bride
you left to fend for yourself,
how you must have felt!
The roller coaster ride’s helped
to take things in their stride
Trump card- values imbibed.
Tough decisions had to be made
as green pastures you bade,
after initial hiccups, done fine
partner along with you to dine.
The wheel of life has led you afar
in our hearts ever near, Dear!
At the cross roads,
you’ll find direction, hang in….
Events leave us with hard choices to make
In the bargain, no relationship permitted
to break towards kith and kin
Develop tolerance, grit and bear
with all forbearance,
find footing in new soil,
accept changes in life, rain or shine,
freedom from strife,
with patience and faith move on
until the goal is sighted…
