Long Road

Long Road

I remember.
Eyes filled with tears
as I debated whether or not
to speak, to tell him.
Would my voice
portray confidence, comfort
or fail
only displaying my fear, doubt?
This news,
this news simply could not be.
Not cancer.
I had to let him see the doctor first.
But,
he asked me to check,
to tell him the results.
It has been a long road.
Now,
on the other side
of treatment,
I hold onto the hope and strength
that I found.
My love is doing well,
and I have regained
my ability to breathe.
This road is not done yet,
only well begun.
