Not Today

I can’t today. Not today.

A friend lays in a hospital bed. The Cancer threatening to take him away from us.

He has children to yet watch grow. A wife to love. So many years left.

But Cancer.

Fuck Cancer!

Mercy, Lord, mercy. Don’t take him from us. Don’t call him from this world.

Mother Mary, all angels and saints, please – gather around him. Cry out to the Lord for Mercy to fall upon him.

Not today. Please. Not today.
