My lovely girl has been taken away! Does anybody care?God! Even care? And today is my darling's 14th birthday, please someone! bring back Claire! bring back my Claire! She promised to be home early today, She is very pretty with auburn hair, Her friends saw her being carried away!! Anybody? Does anybody care? The Police was informed by me today, Police showed no interest, that's not fair!! And said we hurt her so she ran away, This whole city! Does anybody care? My child is lovely, oh! innocent Claire! How is she and where will she be today? I dread, I shake! Does anybody care? When would Claire be back? Please can someone say? Not a wink I slept all night, not all day, If her father was alive, would they dare? A lonely mum, I only wish and pray, Is she alive? Does anybody care? Late in the evening, on the Good Friday, I answered my door, standing there was Claire!! A cry of joy, in arms,we sobbed away!!! A tearful policeman said, “We do care!!” Written 11 Feb 2020

I believe this was a true story and the girls hair was dyed black and she became very ill. It did have a very happy ending but the child will need some professional help to over come her trauma. You told this story beautifully Krish. Happy Valentine's Day! : )
