How Come ??

They say my heart is weakening
 Yet my love is increasing, how come?
 And they don't answer it.

 They say my eye sight is fading
 Yet my vision is perfect, I ask how come?
 And they don't answer it.

 They say my voice is not audible
 Yet they clearly understand what I meant, How come?
 Again they keep mum!

 They say body can't lift more than ten kilograms of weight
 Yet I can move mountains with thoughts, How come?
 They shows a blank face.

 They say when I walk few miles, I am breathless
 Yet my determination surpasses the bullet, How come?
 They look towards sky.

 They say my body actions have limitations
 However, my wisdom is boundless, how come?
 They close their eyes.

 I know my body is growing and becoming weak
 Yet my soul has full enthusiasm to drive me
 to enable me to perform things beyond the body can think.
