Cancer

Cancer
my tears taste different
my chest has scars
it is not me
when I look in the mirror
some of us
faster than others
we are all dying
i know what is important
i know what is trivial
first out of people's mouths
"how are you feeling?"
I look 10 years older than last year
I try to keep my sense of humor
but my story gets me looks of pity
and I find myself comforting others
some of us
faster than others
we are all dying
life continues to humble me
human nature continues to surprise me
some in their 90's who have never lived a day
I am 30 and I have lived 90 years
I live like I have endless tomorrows
I cherish the smell of the rain
it is a beautiful thing
some of us
faster than others
we are all dying

This produced from words my sister wrote in an email to me - in the last month's of her life. Syrentha Jean Savio 9.23.1970 - 1.11.01 - Rest in Peace.
