Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Times in the Dark

There are times when my cheerful countenance is tested to the extreme

doesn't happen all that often but when it does it's like a bad dream.

Silly little things suddenly, irrationally assume huge importance

It's not like my situation is any different to what it's been

I know the cancer is there and whilst it may be controlled for now

there is no cure, not yet anyway and not likely to be for me.

Research lumbers on , new ideas over simplified in the press

the truth is a cure is some distance away but it will be here some day,

though I rather fear it will be too late for me.

So for now I try to sideline dark thoughts, think about today not tomorrow

because, as we all know, tomorrow is another day.
