How Can I Be Happy When... - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

How can I be happy when
Most people known to me
Are dead and gone?
How can I be happy when
Only a few known to me
Are left behind?
How can I be happy when
My frame is weary and
My senses have turned dull?
How can I be happy when
The grave beckons me
To come and take rest?
How can I be happy when
The world I loved has
Lost its sheer magic?

    Beautifully written. Very similar to my circumstances, however I do take comfort and delight in what family I do have left. But can imagine this day in the future when I'm a little bit older and the body starts deteriorating a little faster. Lovely poem. Well dome! (Report) Reply
