# BLISSFUL Moments #

The day I was born

It was on a dawn

I brought zest

As mom's best

Father was happy too

As junior I'm number two

Both my parents are proud

of me even we're now a crowd

Upon graduation in college

Again it was a momentous pledge

As I will be venturing into the future

On my own with confident and secure

When I got married in time

Was another blissful rhyme

For I got a wife whom I love

A true gift form heaven above

Then another junior was christened

Bears my father's proud surname

It was again time of blissful rally

Ever united as one whole family

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
