Old Age Is Fine Beauty - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

Old age is not new phenomenal
Every individual may have to depart after arrival
What even if old man is not cared?
At least old man has taken care of children and dared

There is no need to weep
Remain fit always and composure to keep
If sea wind is differently blowing
Who cares for and eager of knowing

It is unfortunate to target old man
He has lived his life as responsible noble
What did he not do for whole of family?
Now even children live in comfort and happily

Many old age homes are coming
Great plight for all ages looming
What can we do for their honorable end?
Feel in life as very close and intimate friend

Someone told me about nice end show
Foreign currency deposited for when I go
Bid final bye and say thank you mother earth
My only request not to spoil natural death

Do nothing so as to denigrate human being
No parents may ask for lovely child and sing
If bird was to be left alone on road
What on earth can be considered as load?

With weak wings you are downed
With all abuses and finally stoned
Shunted from door to door
You had never been such a poor

Think of that kind of poverty
That may wait for them from almighty
Feel not any kind of remorse or pity
Old age is not at all curse but fine departing beauty

    Kavitha Rani Husmuk Hasmukh Amathalal Ji is old enough to know and young enough to do. Great poem..I am reminded of a short tamil story read in a magazine..An impatient son who is often irritated by his old father's repeated questions, happens to read his diary after his father' death. The diary was written when he was a young child..The diary goes like this..'now a days my son has started asking so many questions and often repeats the same questions but i am never bored or irritated..Whatever comes from the mouth of my little child makes me so proud of his intention to know things.' after reading this the son is filled with guilt and shame and tears were rolling down.
