Came fully formed upon awaking in the night... four months into chemo last year. Stage IV with Mets.. doing okay..working full time.

Fleetingly a deep sadness sweeps over me... day or night. It does not pay heed, nor ask for permission.

The indignities of chemo fade... A rogue warm tear drop forms and trickles. Grateful to feel something..anything...life rebounds anew.

Do I catch it smirking? Well then, so am I ;)

Lovely Poem laure999. You can tell it comes straight from the heart. You have a lovely way with words.

So happy to hear you have made it thus far. All the best of luck for the future.
