See Spot.
See Spot On.
See Spot on the MRI scan.

My mother’s hand,
Cool and strong,
Grasps mine as
The machines hum around us.
Machines that have detected
Her silent killer.

“All will be well…”
She pats my hand.
I look into her brown eyes
And they are smiling at me.

Mother. Container of
Constancy, Love, Hope – Disease.
My Rock being eroded
From within.

Her days are numbered
Yet she comforts me,
In this room where we sit,
Mom and I –
And a few spots.

oh my goodness...what an emotionally powerful piece of work!
If this is based on fact, you and yours are in my prayers.
