You aspired to reach the summit some day
You trudged on, lunged on, despite delay.
Your persistence paid off and one fine day,
The summit was conquered at last....hurray.
Once on the peak, you rest, you think
your family, your friends goaded you all along
the cuts the bruises were soothed by the song
which lady life whispered in your ears
occasionally though you were moved to tears.
Reminisces over, now lets start afresh
another summit is calling,
lets start the conquest
knowing it fully that one fine day
this summit too would be distant,
like the one you scaled today
But don't forget the ones you met
all the while
coz they r the ones who made
your journey worthwhile
