A Sudden Change

Tears drop
Drip drop…drip drop…
Clock ticking…
Tick tock…tick tock…
I’m waiting…

Oxygen tank is pumping…
My dad is breathing
Shallowly…

My fiance nearby
We both praying
Afraid that our nightmare comes alive..

Then a sudden light bright our heart filled with excitement
My father open his eyes..
My spirits came to light!

But something I didn’t expect
Not ever to be known
My father forgot his name
Or who I am…

I was unknown…

He remember his wife just a little, he remember my sister
But yet he do not remember
Me or himself either…

In a flash of light
Like in a car crash
I cried…

YOU KNOW ONE THING BABY ,OUR BOTH PAINS ARE SAME IN DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE. I WAS NEVER CLOSE WITH MY DAD. BUT WHEN HE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH LUNG CANCER THE BIGGEST SHOCKER OF MY LIFE. DR BECAME GOD AND ORDERED MY DAD TO LEAVE THIS WORLD BEFORE ANOTHER 6 MONTHS.I LEFT ALL MY UPCOMING BUSINESS WITH MY PARTNERS AND SPEND EVERY PAINFUL MINUTES OF 6 MONTHS TILL HE BREATHED HIS LAST.NO PAIN KILLER CAN ERASE THE MEMORIES OR REMOVE THE PAIN FROM ME. IAM GLAD YOUR DAD HAS MADE YOUR HEART BEAT FASTER BUT YES GOD IS KIND WITH YOU. HE WILL BE MORE KINDER TO YOU

Hi Dinesh,

Please don't call me "BABY". Sorry for the lost of your father, but thank you.
