And It Could Be Years

A poem written by my partner John Leach ...

Janine has got cancer
My partner could be dying, it's
only a matter of time, and
it could be years.

People say it's not what it was
they've got it early, it's not a
death sentence, and it could be
dealt with by pills
- But it's said out of love not knowledge.
