Time To Heal

Time To Heal

A Poem by Melissa Kesead

This is a poem I wrote while my husband was going through chemotherapy. It's part of my book, Setting The Furies Free


The terror is over

My mind is now healing

My heart is still so sore

And my thoughts still reeling


No one can hope to know

Or try to pretend

The pain cancer causes

In family, spouse or friend


Your world turns upside down

You lose track of your days

Worry overwhelms you

Your skies are always gray


You’re always in limbo

And fighting for what’s true

Keeping track of all things

Because he counts on you


You’re looking for the end

It doesn’t seem in sight

Everything feels so wrong

You just want it so right


I’m grateful for the strength

Of all those around me

I’m glad the time has come

And he’s finally free


The hard time is over

And healing has begun

Now only time will tell

If the battle was won
