Important days of year

Since I am born I use to celebrated,
every year, on date of birth, my birthday.
Many other dates are important, of the year
Obviously, those too I have to remember.
My wedding anniversary, children’s birthday
my important festivals and some annual days.
Mother’s-day, children-day; many celebrations,
I know through news-papers or television.

In my childhood, the result day, I used to wait.
It was the day, I got promoted to next grade.
Showing mark-sheet I got applauded by parents,
mostly good marks, above average I used to get.
After joined my service, though don’t celebrate
but with great enthusiasm I use to wait
for the next year’s January’s last date;
is the date, I get my salary increment added.

These dates add various colors to life every year
but also to grief and trouble, some dates are there.
Every year I have to remember to file the return
of income tax, property tax; early possible as soon.

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
