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
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
