A sad poem
November 12, 2015 8:58am CST
The diagnosis Smiles freeze, Terror and anguish, Squabble to take their place, As tears rise, Demanding release, Words quiver, as they stutteringly fall, Breaking into meaningless noises. Questions rumble, Through the dimness of the mind, Unuttered, They die at the gateway. Absolute despair, A chill runs down, The spine. Hopelessness, Stares at the expanse. Of a bleak future, Life seems meaningless, As truth sinks in, “Cancer”, The death knell, Has sounded on life. I wrote this poem when a friend of mine was diagnosed with cancer .. she passed on two years ago..

@Marilynda1225 Its tough to lose friends an loved ones to this dreaded disease. I hope that your friend responds well to treatment. I have another friend recently diagnosed with cancer.. I hope and pray that they ( your friend and mine ) will respond well to treatment and be able to live a long and satisfied life.
