My wife was diagnosed with cancer in July of 2017. It was to be a few chemo treatments and all was going to be well. Well, of course it was not that simple for here we are in June of 2018 and the battle is still going. I experienced this moment when someone rang the bell for their last treatment.

My wife was diagnosed with cancer in July of 2017. It was to be a few chemo treatments and all was going to be well.

Well, of course it was not that simple for here we are in June of 2018 and the battle is still going. I experienced this moment when someone rang the bell for their last treatment.

I went home and wrote these words.

Title: Infusion Room

Sad faces Solemn faces

Contemplation Examination

Bags with fluid Cords connected to bodies

Mediation Reflection

Beeping noises Sounds of silence

Consideration Deliberation

Heads held downcast

Heads held straight forward

Observation Introspection

Many shall make it Others don’t know

Self-examination Rumination

Visitors Loved ones

Illumination Determination

Nurses Assistants

Investigation Exploration

Patients lying there

Minds wondering where are we going

Sorrow Despondent

Proclamation Declaration

Someone rings the bell

Happiness fills your heart

Then you stop

And, think about your own situation
