Cancer Comes

Cancer came
A holiday ticket
Without a dark imagination
I enjoy friends
Expressions of love
Children’s unexpected patience
My own stopping
A new gentle tiredness

No leg waxing
A refreshing intimacy with mortality
New trust in what is
New passion in loving
And making love
Urgency in sharing life

In being alive
Great freedom
A beautiful poem
I could never write
Phoebe
