Not content to let
Creeping illness stalk and steal
Your breath,
We build our fortress.
Oxygen tanks,
Medication,
Treatments,
Strategies,
Good looking therapists,
Jovial nurses.


We team up.
Already, there are flowers
in the yard
in the vase
We won't consider
Graves or funerals.

We stage meals for months.
We rent movies.
This could be fun, right?
We have never spent so much
Time together,
And time is now
The most precious commodity.
