Here’s short poem about the joys and feeling once chemo is over –
Chemo over, Yippy-do
Now I can come spend time with you
Telling stories, having laughs
Drinking wine from big carafes.
Seeing Grandkids growing up
Taking water from a cup
Swimming, tennis not for me
But Poo Sticks fine and games by sea.
Jumping planes and seeing friends
I hope this journey never ends
Of course it will, but ’til it does
I’m going to make the loudest buzz …
The joy and elation on finishing chemo is so stratospheric that only poetry or art can typify the real sense of achievement – through all the ups and downs, through all the not knowing and the not wanting to know. Life is good and we should remember that on a daily basis and make the most of it when we can.
