No, we won’t be together if I don’t take care-
I must take care of me, if I do indeed dare!
After 3 days of no sleep, I faded away-
Faded away for a month, my asthma did stay!
I barely took care of my mate & myself I did ignore-
Until I came to my senses – I can’t do this any more!
So I hired a caregiver, but he had to leave-
My, oh my, how I did grieve!
But I pursued & investigated care by the day-
And arranged for my mate for 6 hours to stay!
What did I do while he was at play?
I went home & slept – it wan heaven where I lay!
Yes, after 5 weeks I have caught up at last-
My outlook is better & I’m catching up fast!
I must take the time to take care of me-
Or else you & I will not continue to be!
