Gaye Stanley’s Poems


The Face of Cancer

I didn’t know when I smiled at you.

That I had this awful disease.

I often pitied others.

But now they pity me.

I have visited places, that

I never knew I would see.

Chemo clinics and operating rooms.

Just no time for tea.

I know all of my doctors,

They all know me too.

Another operation?

We will try to see you through.

I have faced so many things,

As have all of you. I face CANCER every day.

The Face in the mirror is YOU.

I am running ahead of CANCER and facing the BULLY every day.

One day I will be CANCER FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

So will all of you.
