You look at my face

Devoid of any emotion

I wait patiently.

HandsDo you remember?

How my hand had felt in yours

I miss your warm touch

Blank

Some days I recall

The times we spent together

Today I am blank

  1. It is indeed touching Sulekha! My father is suffering from dementia where he has problem in remembering the names and numbers. Thankfully my brother and his wife keep stimulating his mind with their brain games and puzzles, which helps in his condition to stay stable.

    1. Swati, Sad to know, it is heartbreaking to see our parents go through this. My mom had a temporary memory loss and she would repeat things, she didn’t recognize me once and I was crushed to see her confusion. God bless your brother and bhabhi who are taking such good care of your father, take care.
