Cancer Poem #2


It is a mid summer’s eve

and time to dream


of an endless tomorrow


filled with romantic illusion


But as the day seems long and hot


it is changed forever


in the twinkling of an eye


lives are turned upside down


Where have the butterflies gone


and why have the birds stopped singing


the children are a blur of colour


as they pass on their bicycles


and the stars have all


fallen from the sky


Fear blinds the eye


and drowns the soul


for it is all consuming


when we know not


what the morrow brings


to a body filled


with a disease so evil


Simple things are gone


that used to give us pleasure


maybe to return in a time


when we have healed


but for now all that can


be felt is the cold fear
