Telling My Son

(a cancer patient's story)

I'll not paddle on a sea
Nor touch my feet on a shore
Nor carve a mountain
Nor scan a forest without
A word in the air
For your curious ears

I'll not lay a critic eye
On a director's latest fruit
Nor pass a night...
Without breathing a word
Of tenderness in me
To your sleeping form

I'll not shed a tear
Nor moan in pain
Nor sigh for the
Short-sheeted time

What I cannot spill
With my choosing mouth
I'll blot with ink
And the paper can
Speak for me

It's the only way
I can ever think of
To leave you unempty
'Cause I cannot say
How long this body
Can keep up with this
Fast-paced journey

I'm sorry if I must
Leave a scar in your heart
I have no choice, I can't
Make my leaving painless

Because this fiend
I'm fighting inside me
Could someday consume me
Till I'll never wake again

Be good, my son
And grant me a smile
For me to bring with me
To my eternal sleep.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
