WHO AM I - A Poem on Alzheimer's

The twilight hours of cool breeze;
a time for resident-relative to meet;
Seated on Chairs and Wheel-chairs;
they looked unperturbed with the crowd around;

Some could talk, few sobbed …….agitated
but many gave just a vacant look,
If one walked non-stop all around,
others would sit and watch far away…..

The meaningless questions of “how are you”
exchanged with a mute silence or a sob,

What is this disease??????
Why this Suffering ??????

A successful  and eventful career
enough of wealth to enjoy their retired life,
their dreams of being with kith and kin,
in their loving home built with love and care,

All a forgotten past; never to recollect!!!.

Who knew the wheels of  Life
would rotate this way????
the road of destiny
would lead them here….

Can they…….
Enjoy what they own;
remember their mission of life;
share their fears and pain;
express their love to kith and kin?

For ages ….
Sages have dwelled in Silence to realize Atman!!!

This dwelling  has a different search
Neither of Atman nor Paramatman….

A search within…..
WHO AM I??????
