Gratitude Poem

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 realized
that was no
