Today was a bad day for me
But not as bad as for you
Today we told you he's dying
And there is nothing that we can do.

He just hasn't been feeling good
But his doctor told him he's ok
He wanted a second opinion
So you decided to send him our way.

The doctor had done a short exam
And "masses" he could easily feel
He ordered a CT scan for your husband
Surely your mind was spinning like a wheel.

You both came into the office today
To get all of his test results
I wanted so badly to give you a hug
And tell you its no ones' fault.

As I led you to wait in an examining room
If only I could have said
Enjoy the next 5 mintues of life
For the rest will be spent in dread.

The doc went in to talk to you both
And you both came out with heads high
Knowing that he had inoperable cancer
Knowing within months he will die.

You were on my mind when I awoke today
You'll be on it when I fall asleep
Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers
And in my heart, your family I will keep.

I can not imagine the pain you now have
Please know that I'm here for you
As only your nurse, theres' not much to say
But just ask and if I can, I will do.

Please treasure each moment you have
And live your life together as free
For when God takes him home to stay
You will know it was meant to be.

Very sad. There is so much suffering around. Sometimes all we can do is sympathize. Great poem.

Very nice read ma'am....Isn't it wonderful they have each other? Isn't it wonderful they have at least some time to share and prepare?
Isn't it wonderful they have someone like you to think about them and care?
