Cure my broken body
            with what?
            i don’t care
            anything but time
            that’s one thing I can’t spare
 
Avert my disruption
            inevitable
            as it may appear
            painful, too
            but i don’t shy from fear
           
Neglect any tear
            planted
            upon my cheek
            it tells an untrue story
            i am anything but weak
 
Chase away my doubts
            when the odds
            seem far too great
            disregard all others
            i will survive this fate

 

Ease every worry
            as we await
            the truth
            it doesn’t look good, they say
            but i stem from Ruth


Reach for my hand
            when they speak
            that unwanted answer
            i will smile and remind you
            darling, it’s only Cancer
