Retirement at last, now I can enjoy life more.
Then the doctor says cancer,
After surgery, radiation, chemotherapy,
And pills, pills, and more pills,
All this is making me more ill
More than the cancer.
A lot of bad days and a few better days,
On the bad days I feel like giving up,
And then a good day comes along and I feel better.
On one bad day when I felt like giving up
A small voice said,
“Grandpa could you tie my shoes.”
And I said “why yes precious, a hundred times yes,
In fact a thousand times yes.”
