Facing The Unknown

late at night, in a cold sweat
I feared the future
it’s a life we didn’t want
but it’s a life we will
experience … together

two words changed our journey
‘It’s cancer’
you followed doctors orders
and I tried my best
to be strong
and give you a shoulder to lean on

over time I realized
I needed you to lean on
going for chemo
knowing how sick you would get
a courageous act … only you
could endure

I thought the worst was over
when those treatments were through
until radiation came
burned and burned again
skin peeled… holes formed
but you never quit

this journey has defined our life
fear … then fight
love and commitment …
then … strength and support
through it all we remain …
