REMEMBERING A FRIEND

The words were cruel and stung hard
In the back of my brain
Dry lips searched for words
But the words that never came

Shock waves and tingling
Running all thru my head
The results are not what I had hoped for
The Doctor finally said

The tests, he said were positive
But how can this be
I know it happens to others
But most certainly not me

Then that awful word “Cancer”
That still echoes thru my mind
The word that strikes terror
At almost any time

The drive back to home
Seemed at least ten times as long
No more joy ringing in my heart
No more singing happy songs

I stumble blindly thru my door
As the tears start to flow
Swollen rivers of tears
From deep within my soul

Then I dropped down on my knees
Thinking this was the end
But “ Glory to God “ I remembered
That I’ve got a Friend

Now the cancer is gone
And I’m good as new
All praise and glory to God
To whom all praise is due

Your poem is very good, and it shows the topic 'fearful' well. Thank you for sharing the fear and the rejoicing through our Friend that is with us through it all. God bless.

This is really good. And don't worry. We all make mistakes sometimes. I don't think I've had an entry YET without at least one mistake.

The rhythm didn't seem to fit in a couple of places.

Overall, this was really good, and fit the topic well. Great job.

Hello fellow Illinoian! Great poem. So many are faced with cancer. You captured it well.

Hi: Through your carefully chosen words, you showed us the fear such a diagnosis raises in one's heart. We rejoice in the end results. Good work...

Yes, fear is probably the number one response to a cancer diagnosis. You really captured the feelings of someone who is newly diagnosed. I especially liked the stanzas in which you say you can longer sing happy songs. So true! It takes time to view anything from a "happy" perspective again. Good job with this poem!

Great poem. You are not alone in the mispelled word club. I search and search and always seem to miss at least one. Good message in your poem and it had a nice rhythm.
