With apologies to poets from Keats to Yeats to Frost I wrote these lines at some unearthly hour this morning when I just could not sleep with worry about Mon morning and chemo once more.
" As I step back on the chemo train
I'm really scared of future pain
My journey was over or so I thought
Now there's another battle to be fought
For five years or more I dared to dream
Fate had other plans it would seem
My NED status , it just disappears
And left me sobbing ,full of tears
That first time round , I was very brave
I took that poison, my life to save
The side effects I tossed aside
And wore my wig as a badge of pride
The second time round is such a blow
Now I've learned all there is to know
This disease is evil , it has no pity
It strikes us all from town to city
There's one great thing , I didn't have before
( and I know they'll help me more and more)
Are a group of women who are always there
Take a bow my ladies from Ovacare !
P..S and of course Ovacome too but it wouldnt rhyme !
