One of those 4am things





In the darkness between one day and another

I watch the travelers on the highway travel

Today begins like so many others

Except today I can feel my life

Beginning to unravel

As the clock silently slips past four

I’m out of bed and across the floor

To take care of the business

I should have taken care of days ago

Like everything else it’s been put on hold

While I wait to see how things unfold

My body tells me yes we have pain

That this week the medicos

Were finally able to explain

One of those “good news bad news” deals

That only brings more questions than answers

I’ve got some serious aches

Where they shouldn’t oughta be

The docs all say we gotta wait and see

So I’m laying here wide awake

Knowing that there’s only one cure for cancer
