A Poem by sette
"

"entry to the contest what would you say?"

"

We live in borrowed time,

We are here to love and live freely,

 

But just like the perfect world we live in,

We are imperfect beings.

 

Sufferings, Pains and Diseases

Make us more fallible than ever.

 

When I heard that you were dying

From the Big C,

All curses were thrown,

I was in denial for the longest time.

 

The relationship was so raw,

But very meaningful nonetheless.

My anchor in the ebb and neap tides

Of my life.

 

How will I survive?

 

Let us enjoy the moment we can

Forgetting about today or tomorrow,

Just live for it day by day.

 

When the time for you to go,

Walk carefully,

Don’t worry about me,

I have all the love you gave me.

thanks my friend for the understanding
Sooner or later, or so it seems we all must come to terms for that
last final trip into the unknown. Surely we miss and mourn those that
leave us. Yet in most faiths we are taught that it is a far far better place
they go to. I posted a piece, more or less, on this subject:"Dark Visitor".

The line of "walk carefully" is quite moving. It is comforting and real.

As someone who has lost loved ones to cancer and am myself a 6 year cancer survivor, I felt every word of your poem. Cancer need not be a death sentence. Keep a good attitude. I hope the person who means a lot to you can fight this killer. Well written. Lydi**
