Once young, now old, battered and worn

Parents abandoned by children earn their scorn

Forgetting the love once parents showered their way

Rearing and protecting, raising them up, night and day


Left alone, discarded and forgotten, they await

Withering away, victims of cruel fate


Holding memories of yesteryear, vanished and gone

When live was full of pleasure and a beautiful song


Knowing neither weakness of body or mind

When love and joy were there’s to find

Now old, they lie alone and often cry

Yearning for love, they moan and sigh


None to hear their lament and cries

No one attends to their hue and fies

Death brings relief to the weary old

The curtain of life draws to a close
