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
