Cancer

Rating: 4.3
There's no trust left; it's all gone now
So during our next appointment
With you standing there dressed
And me mostly naked, shivery in a paper gown
You'll ask me how I'm doing
I'll tell you straight, Doc, just fine
Doc, thanks for asking.

To be on the safe side, to the doctor I went
He probed and he frowned, I knew what that meant
He sat for a moment, stared straight ahead

Keep it up. My cancer doesn't seem as bad as yours -I've had it since 1981, with no major problems, many minor ones. But I'm telling you because, 'I've been there, done that.' You have my good wishes.

Great poem of courage. I always keep on saying ' No retreat no surrender' cling to the Lord and she will take all the pain. True your body may be weaken but your soul and spirit will never weaken when the Lord's words and wisdom is the daily nourishment. Take care always, love lots, melvin

Mary, I see you're examining every moment of your life now. Its so good to see you do that. I just wish there wasn't so much of pathos and I just hope God is going to rewrite a bit of something that was written a while ago or perhaps, there is going to be a sudden change and everything's going to start blooming all over again! Miracles do happen, don't they! I just wish for one to happen in your life, so I can continue to see you smile and reach out. Have a great New Year, Mary!
