Cancer strikes it’s mighty blow,
Thus shedding the beauty, charm & glow.
Unknown to many, it does grow,
Whence time nearing end, we come to know.
Why? They ask, why it chose me,
Bringing a gloom that stole my glee.
Chores innumerable undone all in spree,
Not yet, it isn’t my time to be set free.
Why act in haste Oh! Lord mine Divine,
I wish to spend an eon with those mine.
Allow my age to ripen like mature wine,
I promise, I’ll pray in earnest to thine.
The sunrises & sunsets many yet to see,
Wishing to spend some summer times by the sea.
Have some mercy, I plea, thou upon me,
My kids grow up and grand-kids I get to see.
The pretty little daughter one day to be a bride,
The young lad, my mustachioed son, my heart’s pride.
Don’t oh! don’t chop my life to let family divide,
For a family complete is, where all together reside.
At mercy of others, do not force me to live,
A freedom from cancer, is a boon you can give.
The aches and pains, therapies various of life,
Combined with chemo, radiation solace do give
Yet the cancer in the body drops my morales,
The head goes spinning, wavering in spirals
Like Phoenix feathers, forcefully shedding my mane,
Losing all luster, fading away in a sad vain.
Alas! My bosom beauty has given me a drain,
Leaving me to go lighter and causing me pain.
The prostate glands why grew in vain?
Oh! What is the purpose, what do they gain?
I question to thy Oh! Almighty lord merciful
To my surprise He answers back insightful
The pain, the agony my child is a phase
For you took yourself for granted in your space
You who took things and life for granted
And all the bountiful blessings enchanted
Now that you realize your own precious self
Learn all that I offer and remain positive
Turn the Cancer curse into a blessed elf
And it shall find its way out of your life
Have faith, the pain ultimately shall go
Making you wise, humble with the love glow
The cures too I leave after the suffering
My child for you, a better human to grow
And wake up now life awaits you
Practice Yoga, Give some Reiki Healing
Add some prayers and Dance to therapy
You are Love and Love is for you
Cancer is but a timely reminder of
The soul that is You, The Love that is You.
