Crumpled Thoughts

The declining years,dominated by sulky bone When she endured herself as a crone Yearned for gossips,giggles and grin Chitter chatter and companion conversation about who would win Asking her a recipe was a justification To talk,to connect,to bridge the gap formation To include her as part of my existence Feasibly to make her feel of importance Also the legacies of special dishes needs to be advanced But as her aridness glanced Felt walk to topiary an overload tread Trepidition of being confined to bed Constantly triggered her fears,made her dread Years earlier,when she fulfilled all the expectations Some unrealistic,some burdensome Solitary cookers applauded,"fab !its awesome" In geezerhood,looking to enrich the essence of her wholesome The lodging would exchange with paradise to get perfect bliss Aha ! A quantum of leap for her As dejected disheartened thoughts blur Substance inside gets privilege to stir Fabricated and decorated, a life of she created cheered Confidence shouldered ,connections with dearest antiques reappeared Shared bygone roller coaster,narrated the nostalgia Dance,drank,drove and wrote puns Stopped to care about the judgemental ones Was a lead for innumerable to thrive Age is not a padlock to strife She was a powerful survivor In the charismatic alleys of life.
