A darkness crept into my world, silently
taking the bumpy, smoothness from
my daily chagrins

And then, next it jumped in, unexpected
marring my other lives, my genetic bonds
leaving us all with worry, and the fearful
possibility of it spreading

Through his body, and possibly hers,
I could say why, but would that help
overcome the possible inevitability
or could I 

just be there! For them!

And sleep with my fingers crossed
every night, forever
and ever!

    Cancer is scary. Many in my family have had it and sometimes I wonder if it will get me too. Welcome to poetry soup.
