Ageing with Grace

Dr Ranbir Laishram
As we age with a baggage ,
Packed with life's realities and woes ,
The moans and groans grow louder,
Of the God’s gifted body parts ;
I feel more for the feeble and vulnerable,
For, I failed to fathom them in my heyday,
A new tenderness and warmth sprouted,
Like a mom who worries and care more ,
Of her weak child than the rest,
The more we nurture our body,
The more peaceful we will be in life,
For, we all have lived together ,
Ceaselessly decades long,
And  will continue to do so,
In the times to come,
Forget not dear friends,
Your real companions of life ,
For they are part of your journey.
