    In my head
    In my mind,
    In the deepest part of me,
    A thought grows,
    And it gets bigger,
    Beginning to overload my head
    With an emotion,
    Sometimes sad.
    Sometimes happy,
    Sometimes neither one

    I think of
    My Father, who has cancer,
    Walking with a cane,
    Moving so slow,
    That thought always seems to be
    The biggest one to grow.

    The second
