Walking with Sister Cancer

There is silence in the noisy corridor
It resides among us all
We have all met sister cancer
And now we meet the big machine

There are twenty who wait today
Silently sitting by the wall
Our normal words have deserted us
Today we make do with inner thoughts

What if we are not cured
Will we leave our dreams unfinished
What about our family
And then again does God exist

Why did it have to be me
I was always very careful
My health was nurtured day and night
Is there any justice in the world

There goes a man who is worse than me
My pity now extends to him
Perhaps I have been lucky after all
Then again I am not so sure

There seems no point to waste the day
On thinking what is and might have been
My task today is to trust in God
And act as if I have been cured
