Living contrasts

two people telling their stories
one fighting, one worries
warm breath shifts into white clouds
cancer’s death a freezing shroud
I listened to the both of them
their trust a private  gem 
I felt their huge and intimate fears
while walking on both saw my tears

    Beautifully poignant Ellie! I feel like an observer watching in on a private scene where emotions are rampant and secrets are shared. Well penned poem!
