To Be Twenty-Four

Twenty-four years ago, was nothing short of special

the world turned as it did like before

It was like any other day, in fact perhaps too casual

None may have noticed, except for two couples and their families

Twenty-four years has come by all too fast

she is now grown up and they reminisce the days when she was a child

How they wish those days could last

yet they knew growing up was part of it all

Twenty-four years and not a moment too soon

the clock spins and the calendar rolls

It’s already July, just past June

and a beginning of yet another chapter for her

Twenty-four years and perhaps twenty-four more

she wonders where she will be by then

she has so much planned and places to explore

She  knows her adventure continues even after twenty-four
