” Take time out for yourself. Take yourself out. Nobody else can treat you better”
It had been a long while since she stepped out,
Staying up all night, restless, not any doubt.
Barely hungry and starving all day, such incongruity her,
So I decided to take her out, and relieve all that blur.
Originally hesitant, absently willing, she did agree,
though enough of having people false guarantee.
A trip to the ice-cream store, a picture to reminisce,
that’s all she needed, when life wasn’t amiss.
Her favourite was a scoop of strawberry and cream,
for the twinkle in her eyes reappeared, just like a dream.
After all, nobody who would no more, I am her.
