You had once said, that as you held my tiny hands, every pain, the sorrows and regrets faded away.
You had once said, that I look like an angel, creating magic with my ever-calming smile.
You had once said, that you cried like a child, seeing me in a school uniform for the first time. For you never wanted me grow up and forever stay as your little princess.
You had once said, that my husband didn’t loved me enough. As no other man could ever love me more than you do.
You had once said, you want to meet me in the next birth too. Not much to your surprise, I wanted the same.
And today Dad,
How could you just forget, what you had once said?
Is it not hurting for you to lose the daughter, you have loved the whole life?
For me, it hurts Dad!
It feels like, needles piercing me every hour.
I break into million pieces every day, when you refuse to recognize me.
Every tear from my eyes, pleads you. Pleads you to call my name, at least once. Pleads you to reminisce the moments and memories, that we had held so dear.
Why you seem so far from all of us and me, despite being so close?
Alzheimer’s is dreadful, for the person who just forgot the memories of his long life. Isn’t it saddening to learn that you don’t remember the days of your life? A life, where you always strived harder to make it memorable. A life, that’s not only made of your sweat and blood but with the people you have always loved. It’s heartbreaking for people whose parents don’t remember them. We lose our mind, if our one day out of the blue, our best friend ceases to talk with us. Imagine the plight the sons, daughters who lose their life, their parents to this disease.
