Heaven Only Know What The Future Brings

How Long Will We Have

by country ranch writer

What will our future bring?
Some days I want to scream.
It seems it's a never ending thing.
More bad news coming it seems.

How much more can we take?
Why can't we ever catch a break?
Lung cancer has reared its head.
It is in stage three the doctor said.

Monday he goes for another test.
Then he will come home and rest.
Thursday we go to the doctor again.
Another chemo treatment will begin.

Payments have taking such a bite.
They keep going out of sight.
I cry my self to sleep at night.
Hoping things will turn out all right.
