Biography of Derrick Hubert Schnabel

I was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer in May 2010 but remain upbeat and full of the joys of life. Certain experiences, like my 'work' with fellow terminal patients aged between 6 and 13 make my cancer the most wonderful gift I have ever received. My 'poems' have been written during many pain-disturbed sleepless nights. Although intended as 'word games' to pass the time, they do undoubtedly reflect my thoughts and experiences as well as reflections on life now that mine is coming to a close.

My Angels

my angels

terminally ill we walk together
only they are innocent and pure
our fun together my small gift
through their joy my atonement
their gift to me is love
approach the ward
