Old Age at Home

You are one issue, born  out of my  tissue
be blessed with all the Glories and beauties of life
peace, happiness and  success I wish you

Remember still I was thirty and just born you
Parted  love and left  our only love sign, my wife  
You are one issue, born  out of my  tissue 

To render my duties, you sacrifice young  beauties too
As I ignored my youth for you childhood should not strife
peace happiness and  success I wish you

Old  old man’s burden on shoulders of old man new
Medicines , health drinks, bills and dippers  in rife
You are one issue, born  out of my  tissue

an overdose of medicine can be  fatal I knew
my nerves tender and lying there a knife
peace happiness and  success I wish you

Thought , experience, joys and tasks just like a dew
Just being and breathing feeling the bliss is true life
You are one issue, born  out of my  tissue
peace happiness and  success I wish you

A Bouquet For You From My Garden


Hold my hand and I'll walk you through the blooms
Smiling and carpetting your brick walkway 
Their charisma will blow away your glooms

Tiger lilies from hills open their plumes  
I'll bouquet a few along the pathway
Hold my hand and I'll walk you through the blooms

The crossandra is one of my heirlooms
Dad's gifts can crackle into life all day
Their charisma will blow away your glooms

How about the sprayed dendodrium blooms?
Green houses cool orchids in hottest may
Hold my hand and I'll walk you through the blooms

Grassy ferns and tuberoses' perfumes
Will add lushness and fragrance rightaway
Their charisma will blow away your glooms

I'll bow them in silver to flaunt your rooms
Have a great day! And if you come this way
Hold my hand and I'll walk you through the blooms
Their charisma will blow away your glooms
