strong are the cancer survivors

You hear that knock on the door
And you dont want to open
Never
You know what's on the other side
Cancer 
Disease

But
Its there, already in 
Ready to steal, ready to rob
Fierce

And
Its ready to take away the loved one
That friend
That life
Squeezing out the last air

But that loved one, in their young and old
In their strength and weakness
Leaves a fountain of beautiful memories
That will always flow 
For us
For others.

To all the survivors whether in death or life

If only they could all survive. Perhaps money spent on weapons might be better spent battling Cancer? Kind regards Ian

Very true. All the money they spend on weapons and war could be used for a good cause like research on drugs. Thank a zillion times for the visits Ian. God bless
