John Doe


 

Why have you chosen me?

Why am I considered your best friend?

Why do you see your happiness in my future?

Daily, I receive your many gifts

Oh, how thoughtless are you

Your smile doesn’t bring me joy

When I wake up you are there

Silently holding my hand

Preparing to lead me into my day

As the night approaches

You comfort me

You are always included in my prayers

Even though you are strongly against them

Why have you chosen me?

Where did you come from?

Your many words are silent

But yet you are well heard

You will not accompany me in my future

But I must acknowledge that you were a part of my past

You once departed so why did you return?

How dare you invite yourself back into my life!

Do you not respect my wishes?

You are no longer welcome here

Because my will is to live

So goodbye, cancer
