Poetry Corner: Who Cares for Me

Who Cares for Me

Intrepid and bold, your story not yet told,
Tender and kind you make Nightingale proud,
Cared for others, never asked who cares for me.

Without stumble or hesitation you gave your all,
Stayed up late, rose early to pack them off far and wide,
You cared for others, never asked who cares for me.

Worries and fears, and troubled brows,
Love poured out, wrapped them all and kept them safe,
Cared for others, never asked who cares for me.

Listened attentively, cleared up the mess,
Drove here and there, more miles than a bus,
Cared for others, never asked who cares for me.

Trusted and believed, gave your heart, your soul,
Went without, provided one and all,
Cared for others, never asked who cares for me.

In childhood you nursed your sick,
Washed, clothed, fed, doctor, nurse and punching bag,
Cared for others, never asked who cares for me.

Your heart was broken, your trust betrayed,
Tended your own wounds, the scars they fade,
Cared for others, never asked who cares for me.

Abused, unloved, and cast aside,
Reliable and steadfast, strong and steady,
Cared for others, never asked who cares for me.

Torn apart and broken, tears you cried,
Food on the table, and a shoulder for the tired,
Cared for others, never asked who cares for me.

Disillusioned and lonely, never bitter, never harsh,
Still time for others, your home their harbour, their rest, just ask,
Cared for others, never asked who cares for me.

You fed them all, you helped them grow,
On luscious soil, your flowers blossom and shine,
Cared for others, never asked who cares for me.

Life moved on, barren but never dark,
The tender touch, the loving word you learned to live without,
Cared for others, never asked who cares for me.
