Bittersweet

I try
To shut out the bitter

in my oh so sweet moments

of the day.

But it is hard.

I try to hand

all the bitter

over to God

but a little is left on my fingers.

I try to remember

that 5 good days

out of 7

is a great percentage.

I try to remember

friends having babies

is a miracle

although not mine.

I try to remember

normal has changed

several times before

and doesn’t mean

it can’t go back.

I try to remember

a time when cancer wasn’t

in my vocabulary

in my life.

I try to remember

My determination is strong

My love for life is stronger

My spirit is strongest

I try to remember

These oh so sweet times
