A fight with cancer
"Somewhere, Down The Road" by jaybird1
If somewhere down this road of life
our paths should cross again,
I'll know you came to spread your brand
of sickness, fear and pain.

Some years ago, with treachery
you stole my mate away.
The hurt still lingers in my heart,
until this very day.

Then, later on you came for me
with your same dark, dreaded kiss;
Since then I've struggled, prayed and sought
the road to inward bliss.

What lies ahead, God only knows,
what's waiting there for me;
I'm bent, I'm worn, my eyes are dim,
but, my spirit's cancer free.
