Taste of Death #cancer #poetry

I tasted death

one day you see

it was a cancer

consuming me

***

The bloom of life

cruelly peeled away

fresh softness gone

health unwilling to stay

***

Life please

keep your hold on me

don’t go yet

this is my plea

***

There are those

for whom I  care

can’t do without

more love to share

***

I haven’t gone

there is more time

give me breath

a heart to shine
