on that day the news reached us

and on that day we sat together as a family

and as a family

we cried

as a family

we feared

feared the future

feared what tomorrow would bring

and feared that what was just said

wasnt a dream

not like i had hoped

when a few days before

i heard the same thing

things i wasnt supposed to know

things i didnt want to believe

things that were said on a heart wenching phone call

one my mom had with her sister

one of sadness

one of realility

what will happen next?

what do we do from here?

the questions that were left unanswered

the words that were left unsaid

words that would have been insensitive

considiring the words we had just heard

the words that went like this,

ringing im my ears

cancer

they ring in my ears still

-your mother has cancer-
