This happened -April, 2005

I barely knew you, but you understood

the battle I was about to fight

because you’d just been there and came through it


You came to my house and patiently explained

what that first chemotherapy would be like

answered questions

and held my hand

listened to my fears and reassured me that I can

Would I like you to come with me?

Would you mind? I don’t want to be burden.

My kids are teens and so emotional, could you help me talk to them?

You just smile.. I’d love to

We’ve lost touch 

Both moved to different places

I’m good now and strong

And I hope you know how much

Your support made a difference
