A Poem: Gratitude

When I write the word “Gratitude”
I think recovery.
I don’t think “cancer”.
I think gratitude for him
for me, for this
--surely not this?
We are grateful or we are not.
We say Yes! and Thank you!
All around me well-meaning
friends say,
“You can say ‘No’!”
But I say Yes
I don’t No
Who knew…
“It’s like a relationship on steroids” I
told a friend
then I realized
that was no metaphor.
