Reassurance needed



She needs reassurance

She wants to know the answer to

Questions I don’t know

 Like “Will I lose my hair again?”

“What treatment do you think I will have?”

“Will I have to stay in hospital?

She needs reassurance

I give half hearted answers sometimes, I lie

And reply,

“You might do, but only a little maybe”

“ I’m not too sure “

“I don’t think so”

It makes me feel bad but how can I say nothing,

remain silent when …

She needs reassurance

She sad, she has been weeping most of the day,

She tells me she doesn’t have the fight in her any more,

is older and life is too difficult sometimes,

 I hold her so tight as if to take all of the burden from her.

I tell her my father is about, guiding, looking after her like always

She needs reassurance

I can tell the things that I do know though

That I will be by her side

 At every appointment,

During every treatment

When she needs to be nursed, I will be there

I will brighten up her darkest days

I will be there when she’s cured

I will be there when we  will beat  this disease

This she can  be assured

  1. Love this one Finn – you have brought warmth and affection into a scary and worrying situation. In other hands this could have been a “woe is me” type, erm, thing…
    No missing words (as far as I can see) but get back to the bigger font!


    1. Thanks I’mi glad you understood where I was coming from. “Woe is me ” is not my style.

      Point taken with the font , yes J was checking it out on mobile ,its tiny, I didn’t realise at the time.

      Yes no missing words , but that’S down to my proof reader aka J and my new dyslexic screen overlay .
