The Aged Couple. - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..
The were in their old age
Ailments, of old age visible
They were feeling sad
The old age an ocean to swim with
Tens of years they lived together
Built their own home in a valley
Tilled the land and planted fruit bearing trees
The plantations looked with care
The pain they shared each other
They felt happy the life with their children
The children they gave finest education
To compete in a world of competitions
And make themselves stand in their own legs
Luck had blessed the couple, all placed better jobs
They married and settled in distant towns
And called frequently their papa and daddy
Knowing well they are helpless to look after
With their own physical presence and attachment
They continues their journey in a beautiful home
The life without children, and prays to god
Give us a peaceful farewell from this world
And give sufficient care to our beloved ones.
