Daddy

Daddy was diagnosed with cerebral ataxia,
About which none of us had idea.

We could only understand that it was related to brain,
And doc explained that his muscle control will weaken.

Not a major issue, we had thought,
As a family, we will manage and things will sort.

But within a month, his muscle coordination declined,
And when I went to see him, he was eating like a child.

The next he got a cardiac arrest,
Mom was in sorrow, without any rest.

Doctors gave a grim picture,
As he went on life support structure.

We knew he was going and there was no relief,
Our hearts were aching and spring… bleak.
