Think Pink

Why you? Where’s the justice?

I’m still in shock, I’m still disgusted

At the sheer unfairness and wrongness of it all

At the fact that it’s left you feeling so helpless and small.

You try your best to put on a brave face every day

Occasionally uttering words that you try so hard not to say

Like, ‘ Sharan I’m petrified’ or ‘I just want to cry’

My stomach always drops, what do I reply?!

I want you to confide in me, but just don’t know what to say

You don’t care to hear that it’ll all be ok

So instead I make it clear that I’m here for you all the way.

Whether you need a real-talk or a random distraction

Any way that I can help, even by just a fraction.

I’ll take on all of your projects, I don’t want you to stress

Concentrate on your recovery, DO NOT digress

Allow yourself to rest before it’s time to start your chemo

You’re a crazy busybody with no off-switch, yes… we know!

But it’s time to put your health first and have some down-time

I promise that I’ll keep everything running, it’ll all be fine.

I just want to knock that disease out and make it go away

Let it know that you’re going nowhere, that you’re here to stay!

I’ll be thinking of you until you emerge victorious, all the way till the end

Because you’re an amazing human being, but more importantly, you’re my friend. ❤

    1. Hi Karan, I wrote this for my friend who’s suffering from breast cancer, luckily she’s doing well and responding well to her chemo so far, so fingers crossed she’ll make a full recovery 🙂

      1. Oh no! But I’m happy the chemo is working for her. I sincerely hope that she gets well soon. Please let her know that there’s someone in Dubai wishing her a speedy recovery.
