Set Free

Don't look at me
With pity in your eyes.
Don't say ... what next?
Referring to my demise

Cancer has shown me
What real life can be
Life has more meaning now
That my heart and soul are free

I can live my life now
As if each day could be my last
I take each moment as it comes
I don't think about the past

Please don't feel sorry for me
I'm happier than I was
Life is just much different now
Since I've taken time to pause

Cancer will not beat me
I won't let it have its way
If when I wake each morning
I am thankful for the day.
