Take Care

When I say, “Take care”,

I want you to stay safe,

To not be foolhardy as you dare

Into danger, do no not walk straight

 

When I say, “Take care”,

I want you to look good,

To be conscious of how you appear

To be neither nonchalant nor crude

 

When I say, “Take care”,

I want you to eat and drink

In moderation. And of gluttony beware.

About your health you must think.

 

When I say, “Take care”,

I want you to have enough rest.

As you sleep, strip your mind bare

Of all things that bring stress.

 

When I say, “Take care”,

I don’t want to lose you, love.

You are a treasure precious and rare,

Sent to me from above.
