Count not Months but Moments

With a dangerous disease I had been afflicted
A word went round in terms of cricket tournament
Of good bowler cancer, the player will be balled.
A word went round in terms of unemployment
That there will be one vacancy in the university
A word went round in terms of real estate agency
A good house will be for sale in pose area of the city.
Believe me luckily with Him there was no urgency. 

And a word came in from the Greatest Word-Maker
Time is free, priceless, can’t own it but can use it
Can’t keep it but you can use it like a ropewalker
You can never get it back once you have lost it. 
Keeping Him always with me I followed those words
And the ancient adage “Drink thy own water with glee”
Along with medicines, home remedies and the herbs
Diagnosed in April’94,on 10th Dec'94 cancer free.

And that day was the happiest day in my entire life
That was in 1994 and here I’m in 2011 as a family tree.
