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.


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.)
