Why have you made face


Like Deadpan


You were so lively & strong


My Baby


Return Back to those times


When You were Carefree & Strong


It’s tough for me


to watch you struggle


to move & Play


Come Dance to the music


You will come out of all pain.


Mamma,


I too desire to break the barriers


But the deadly Alzheimer’s


has put me behind bars


I can’t stand music


It’s thud is ear-splitting


I can’t bear to stand.

(A conversation between an ailing daughter and her mother. It’s unbearable for her to see her lively daughter suffer from Alzheimer’s and has reduced to a life which has no meaning.)
