Despite your current battle

with the dreaded big ‘C’,

you continue to amaze

not only me,

your courage is inspirational,

your joy is a surprise,

you’re very good at hiding

the fear behind your smile,

honestly my friend,

you’d be well within your rights,

to be a little selfish

and focus on your fight,

but your overwhelming instinct

is to help others where you can

where you get that strength from,

I can barely understand,

I find myself almost grateful

for the journey you’re going through,

for it’s dissolved all the walls

and we see the true you.
