Old Age Couple
by Dr. Jaipal Singh
Bookmark and Share
 

With his advancing age
He has so easily reconciled
With the receding hairline
And thinning of silky dark hair
Growing numbers of his lenses
Cavities in teeth and miserable gums
After all, it's inescapable in life
Which every soul has to endure!

But knowingly or unknowingly
Ignorant of this truth of life
She is whining all the time:
Oh! My tooth is aching
I can’t see things as before
My hairs look gray and clumsy
And why joints are so painful,
Giving him really a hard time.

Comment Dear Krishnan Iyer ji,
I think Boloji is not active in Hindi service now. You may, however, peruse the following Hindi poem "रंग" of mine:

जब तुम थे
मेरे आस पास जीवन में
खुशी थी, सुख था, रंग थे
जैसे हो कोई इंद्रधनुष
स्थायी जीवन में॰

आज भी याद है मुझे
तुम्हारे रोज बदलते परिधान
वो गुलाबी और नीले रंग
बन गए थे मेरे भी पसंदीदा
बस जाने अंजाने में॰

फिर एक दिन
तुम छोड़ गए मुझे
साथ ले गए सारे रंग भी
कुछ भी न बचा इस जीवन
और व्याकुल मन में॰

अब मुझे पसंद हैं रंग
बस काले और सफ़ेद
सफ़ेद रखता है निर्मल और शांत
काला एक अच्छा है छलावरण
भावनावों और दर्द में॰
