Poetry By: Desilu

a bit of doggerel about my recent illness.

When they said I had a tumour

I kind of lost my sense of humour.

I hadn't got a clue

about what I should do.

I knew I mustn't cry

I really had to try

to be brave as I could be

for my precious family.

So I decided to get through it

in the best way I could do it.

I didn't winge or whine,

I didn't give one sign

when it got too much for me,

because of my family.

There were times when it was grim

and I felt out there on a limb,

but there were times I felt quite blessed

by the friends that I possessed.

I didn't think that I could do it,

but somehow I got through it.

Now I'm feeling very pleased

I may have beaten this disease.

My sense of humour has returned

and there is so much I have learned.
