Hospital visits Monday, Wednesday, Friday
Blood transfusions, Spinal Taps, Chemo,
Needles, Pills, Procedures,
Doctors, Nurses, Patients, Parents.
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.
I had to keep fighting so I would survive.
So many new concepts, so many new things
A new way of life, a new way to live.
No more going out, only staying in,
No more school, only trips to Children’s
I found a new family of friends,
I soon longed for the days I spent with them.
I miss the long days I sat all day
On those Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays.
