“ 74th Birthday Morning,
phone ringing for wishes… unattended
cup of tea and newspaper waiting for the sip… unattended
something not right…
blood in stool,
diagnosed stage 3,
question from mind : Life is at its evening , is night now near?
answer from will power : Life has a new day every day and evening to disappear.
months and weeks…
chemos & radiation ,
pain , irritation
exercise & running ,
will power , motivation
cheers over jeers
….the long day ….surgery
preference …on two legs not the stretcher
fun over depression,
proudly walking the red carpet of the theatre
few needles in back ,
….. six hours of unconsciousness
….dark deep silence
then the flash…
a rainbow from nowhere….
in brightness …. appears son’s face ….
congratulations you have won the battle
the smile of his will power replies , yes I hear ”
