I SHOULDN'T BE HERE
I shouldn't be here in this bubble of time,
A whirl of travel to new lands.
Impressive horizons full of beauty,
Our life lately has been unpredictable.
Since the day of the life-changing news
Delivered by our medical consultant.
"You have six months of life at the most".
I was numb with shock at the news.
I would live every day of my life left,
No time for sadness or looking back,
I will make the world my epitaph.
It has been two years since the deadline,
My health has continued to improve.
We suspect a misdiagnosis I fear,
We content ourselves with our love.
Content in the comforting knowledge
"I SHOULDN'T BE HERE"
