The storm was brewing in his mind,

chaos in a blur,

the doctor tried to speak in a calm tone,

she tried to ease his fears

but all he heard was

‘cancer. Six months to live …’

and he became mute and unreachable,

his mind raced like rough seas,

I’ll never see my baby daughter grow up,

eventually my wife will meet another man

who my daughter will call Daddy.
