Pause, For About A Year

by Amy Murray

It started with a test

And a positive biopsy

Take a deep breath

Have a dream, picture the future

 Surgery, infection, hospital stays

 Chemo, radiation

 Vencomycin, Taxol, Herceptin, Adriamycin

 Have a dream, picture the future?

Jump through the next hoop

More surgery

Breathe

Keep dreaming; walk on the shore if only in your mind

Waiting

 

(Pause, for about a year)

 

Waiting

 Breathe

A flight, a taxi drive, a beach house

A dream come true

A walk on the shore

Breathe, deeply
