Reconstruction Surgery Today!
It’s surgery day at last;
Last night I had to fast
Today I sit and wait
While pondering the “girls” fate;
Will they be twins once more?
Just much smaller than before,
Goodbye my lopsided friend
Hope you’ll be much perkier in the end.
Here’s to bras where both sides fit the same
And no more neck and shoulder pain!
Although to some this may seem vain
Or who’ll think more surgery? She’s insane
But so many parts of me got lost
As part of breast cancer’s cost
Just want for once to feel like me
Or the me I think I use to be
I hope the sisters will understand
My escape from CancerLand
For I have paid and paid my dues
And want to celebrate some good news
Don’t expect to see “my girls” on Oprah, You Tube or Letterman,
Just say a prayer they will stay healthy, and won’t go down this road again!
For I am a cancer jigsaw puzzle, still trying to make my new pieces fit,
And breast cancer came with no instructions on how to make sense of all of it.
So if I mourn the loss of how things use to be, I hope you’ll try and understand
The tears will pass, just give me time, and occasionaly hold my hand.
But for now, raise your glass and join my toast, til we meet face to face;
And help celebrate my happy news… I’ve just remodeled second base!
