A Cancer Wife's Reflections and Gratitude

In my mind, I can see miracles
I can also see death
In my mind, I can mourn for a minute
I can also know this moment of joy
In my mind, I can vacillate
I can also fixate on what if
In my mind, I can ask God
Please, please, please change your mind

In the world, I am cheerful
I wear a smile and I am living for today
In the world, I am confident
I say I'm fine and that is true
In the world, I am a beacon
I channel hope and faith and love
In the world I cheerlead
I ask our friends to join us in ecstasy today

In the world we are lucky
We found our love and live it well
In the world we are hopeful
We treat each minute like a day
In the world we are random
Cancer strikes where it will
In the world we cling to one another
We would have done that anyway

In my mind, I am sometimes fearful
I wonder what we won't get to have
In my mind, I can fall off track sometimes
I don't know if I can bear what comes to be
In my mind, I cry for an instant
I don't want to lose this love I have
In my mind, I seek God's help
I want today to go on and on

Whatever comes our way, we'll go hand in hand
Whatever comes our way, we'll face it together
Whatever comes our way, we'll know we have been lucky
Whatever comes our way, we have known love.
