like the skeleton trees of November
with tendrils so stark and so slender
grasping for things to remember
when Spring suddenly burst into splendour
seems so long ago
thoughts spinning round in my blender
songs melt in my echo chamber
notes of passion, attraction, abstraction,
I thought I felt the answer
it revealed it was cancer
who played this joke on me?
days are shorter and thinner
hope I make it through winter
when the ice turns to streams
and I won’t have to wait for my dreams
seems so far away
