having lost the companions

having lost the contemporaries 

having failed to bridge the gap between generations

the life of single elder is nothing but a solitary confinement 

time kills them every second inch by inch before they are leaving peacefully 

they are nothing but orphans  having all succeeding legal heirs around them

no body has got time to spend time for them apart from providing amenties

life is not for amenities alone life is for companionship also

then only life cherish otherwise deplores

    credit goes to your family members
    now a days, old people are considered as useless baggage
    taking shelter in old age homes for reason or the other
    with regards
