Who Am I, Why Am I, I Don’t Know

Who am I, Why am I
I don’t know;
Got air, water and gleam,
Got body food and milk,
Got love, warmth and touch;
Yet don’t know,
Who am I, Why am I;
Mama said I am her kid,
Daddy said I am his kid,
Raised me as long,
I got strong;
Their role was over,
When I got mate;
I lived with my mate,
Lived with my kids;
Someone said,
Always there is dark,
Beyond the sun shine;
There is droop,
Beyond the bloom;
All had left one by one,
Even body which was mine,
did not stand by my side;
I don’t know,
Who am I, Why am I;
