Reminiscence

From The Cancer Poetry Project (Karin B. Miller, editor), Copyright © 2001 Fairview Press

The day I finished chemotherapy
they surrounded me with a group hug.
I said, "You have been kind to me.
I will miss you."
They said, "It is good to miss us.
Remember us,
but don't come back."
The day I finished radiation
they cheered and gave me
their autographed certificate.
I said, "You have been gentle and kind.
I will miss you."
They said, "It is good to miss us.
Remember us,
but don't return."
Today I recover.
I remember them.
I sigh. And I smile.
But I don't come back.
