Take care of that old person who is a baby
(Based on a write up of Jayaraman Venkatraman Dindigul.Thanks to him)
Old age is definitely the return of infancy .
It makes you tell the same thing again and again,
It would make you talk a lot and also sometimes,
Make you keep silent and be adamant about it
It would make one like or even dislike food,
Make one tell a lie that he is sick some times ,
And some times make one hide his sickness,
And it would make one needlessly angry and sad.
Look after these very old babies with great care,
Talk to them of old stories, give them what they like ,
Make them feel that as long as you are there ,
There is no need to worry at all for anything
Never tell bad about them with any one else,
Never leave them for it is through them,
That you have come and once upon a time, they did,
Take care of you this way when you were a baby”.
If not today once after some more time,
You, yourself would again become a baby
And when you are skowly transforming in to ne ,
You will feel extremely sad that you did not help ,
That elder who was a baby and did not realise it
