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.
