Life's Pattern - referential contest

Life is like a pure glass goblet
Molded from the beginning
Etchings are added like memories
Each one carefully placed

Home is represented by a firm line
Showing the beginning of life
Followed by the ups an downs of growing up
Here the pattern begins

Love and marriage follows next
Children added to life's  total
The hearts and tiny flowers
Are etched upon the glass

Old age quickly follows
The etcher with expertise
Entwines the flowing line
So that the picture is all as one

Life's pattern is etched for eternity
Unless carelessness causes 
the glass  to be shattered, gone for evermore.

    Beautifully expressed truths of our lives patterns-- "shattered glass" cane so often turn to shattered dreams. Good luck for the competition.
