Cancer Is

Cancer Is

Cancer is more than a six-letter word

A lifetime in a day

Cancer is the puzzle

That doesn’t have a way

Cancer is the window

That lets in the cold air

Cancer is the darkness

Without a light to spare

Cancer is a book

With a binding made of tears

And pages full of memories

Of the ones you’ve loved for years
