Little joys of life could bring sorrow one day
Never ever thought of it so.
when I learned swallowing & chewing
mouthfuls of cereals
Smiles floated on my father’s face.
When he is able to chew & swallow
It seems as if he has cleared the marathon
Smiles flashes on my lips & my eyes moisten.
Never ever thought of it so,
I will see my father
in his childhood days
ailing with Parkinson
which has given him a blow.
A strong-willed Man
is razed down
to a stubborn toddler.

#Parkinson could destruct so much, never ever dreamt in life. The hands that raised me with pride, correcting my each steps searches for my hand to balance his steps.
