Special Day Once A While! - Poem by MBJ Pancras
Usual days come and go,
But Special day comes once a while,
And that's thy day of birth;
Significantly designed with Nature and her gifts.
Thou hast reachedthe summit of success,
And thou hast uniqueness in thy indelible identity.
Thou holdest once the position in TNBA - -
The position had taken thee to reign in justice.
Thou tookest the titles both in State and National levels,
And thy services been indelibly inscribed on the pedestal
That being the guiding spirit to the generations to come.
Thou hast set milestones in Basket Ball - -
The game thou hast coveted with thy lasting efforts.
Titles and positions ran in the way of thy life - -
Thou wert Secretary and Treasurer of TNBA.
Countless budding players thou hast made in thy period.
Thy mentor - - K N Ramajayam - - Former President, TNBA
Hath been beside thee e'er to take thee high,
And coveted the title of Championship (ABC) ,
And the game - - Basket Ball was taken high in glory.
All thy past glory is a mark indelibly recorded.
The day thou wert born is revisited on this day,
And today thou art a child in thy adulthood.
Let showers from above drench thee on this day,
The garden of roses sings songs of joy for thee.
Be drenched in rain of joy,
And thy years shall increase in numbers,
And thy life shall be an archetypal icon for all.
Let my versified melody caress thee on this day.
Feel the pulse of joy in my melody painted by me.
Happy Birthday unto thee!
