when we hugged each other
and became man and woman
we knew one day we will be parents
love for continuity of life

given what we are
celebration for us
is a subtle mode in living
bringing memories
of childhood
tieing the missing links
with narratives of elders

happiness is summation
of minutest pangs of change
we go through

through the cocoon
mother the butterfly
man-ageing father
child is the flower
fragrance surrounds
and birthday is special
