I wake early. I hope I have everything packed.
I can leave the mack in the case. I wait for the taxi, full of anticipation. Wanna show me? Oh look at that girl, oh so fair…with hair of curly golden locks of sunkissed hair.
It will never be. You see a commercial, you shed a tear. The flower wilts day by day. What was bright and shiny slowly turns to grey. There are cries for help and tears running down, there are smiles too of course, here and there, but then comes the frown. I scream and I yell but no one hears.

It can be spiteful and frightful any time of day It can harass you then cast you away It can make you grumble and keep you humble too It can make you cry and say goodbye but never really leave you. Poems about cancer We are very grateful to all of you who have made such an effort to share your personal and poignant poems about cancer with us.
My Dad I feel so empty feel so blue so scared of what my life will be like without you. Life has given me you And given you cancer.
Almost a disappointment. I now understand blank astonishment.
