La Vida Defining Moments

La Vida Defining Moments

The last second's winning touch down
A 3-peat, hole-in-one, and a grand slam
Sports like an American apple pies
Rare tradition of old values can't defy

Life's defining moments so endearing
They're all special worth remembering
A part of history, subliminal thoughts, and experiences
Personified, dignified, and truth; realities

The 1st, 7th, 18th, 21st birthday celebrations
Summed up the continual years of expectations
They're special as eventful as the changing season
Here, there, and everywhere, the civilization

Life's defining moments so spectacle
They're all different sensations of miracle
Beautiful especially from your own perspective
Personal, private, and comprehensive

The first kiss, gentle touch and a warm embrace
Being independent on your own and in your own place
Graduation, job promotion, and an engagement party
Nuptial soirée and the first born baby

Life's defining moments are what they are
Evolution differs for all near or far
So lucky are those triumphant people
Steady and unwavering whom remained as whole.
