Theme: Care

A little TLC*

A young woman
Steeped in despair
Buried under fear
Unable to face the
Cruel, ugly world
Had retracted into
A thick shell hidden
From all humanity
Her family worried
Not knowing how to
Extricate her from
Her deep sadness

On hearing about
Her - a childhood
Friend dropped by
Like a knight in
Shining armour
Remembering her
Love for music
He did reach out
To her by striking
The right notes
Fascinated & charmed
Emerged slowly from
Her shell determined
Never to return there

*TLC for the uninitiated refers to Tender Loving Care
