The final Bye to old age
(I have become old. One by one I am loosing my faculties and I am sad. I can only bid farewell to this old age when my soul leaves the body. Based on a post by my face book friend Hamsabai Santhana Krishnan. Thanks to her.)
In the rotation of wheels of time ,
I did not realize that old age has crept in.
Though my mind was as fast as that of a youth,
The youth somehow deserted my body.
All that I used see clearly were seen through a smoke screen,
My legs which used to run with speed slowed down,
Both my hands whose catch was strong, searched for support,
And some unknown scare entered my mind and troubled me
My body became weak and my soul wandered in side,
The events of the past ran in my mind like a film,
All the errors that I did resurfaced and bore in to my heart,
And this state me realize what is to understand life.
In utter confusion my soul was stupefied not knowing what to tell,
My old age saluted the god with clasped hands and cried,
The soul unable to bear the pain of body started crying,
And I started seeing the form of god through my eyes.
IN the light of his smile I saw lightning as well as a flame,
I bid farewell to old age and my soul merged in to that light,
The cage of the body lay there without any pain,
Is this the body that did all the song and dance.
My body merged in to air and another body was born. Bye old age
