It was an innocent start,
a short trip to a Trader Joe's
and there was more difficulty with my eyes than had been.
Perhaps i was complaining,
sometimes i do,
but then the question came:
"do you ever wish they hadn't taken out the tumor?".
I had a quick response and there was silence after,
a long silence.
I answered simple enough,
"never, for other wise i would be dead."
A deep silence enveloped the car,
but it was because all were relizing what it meant,
that little bit of truth.
And the meaning and the wonder of life was clear.
