I find hope in the memories and in the smiles and laughter,

I find hope in believing there is a here after,

I find hope in friends i have found on this dark road,

I find hope in talking to share the heavy load,

I find it in the connection , i still feel you around.

I find hope in the signs you leave for me to be found,

I find hope in love that travels more father now,

i find in knowing you feel it somehow.

  • Thanks   for posting that - we have had a family bereavement this week, and that brought tears to my eyes, at the same time I understand the sentiments.

    Best wishes - Brian (and thanks again).

  • Hi Millibob , thank you for you kind post , i feel a little bad tho as i did not wish to upset anyone more then i am sure everyone is on the forum.   Pleased you like poem, i know and have heard lots of people with this  "evil enemy "  but with respect to everyone , i  did not realise how life changing it is for the patient and family members of all ages, until i have recently experienced the sadness, anxiety , anger, desperation and now the pain of grief.

    Stay in touch Millibob whenever you can , i am here even if you only want to say hi.

  • Hello   - To be honest we have had a bad week as a family - nothing to do with Cancer etc but a death which are never nice and one that was very much unexpected.

    I have Prostate Cancer and am on a "Curative Pathway" but my treatment is "hormone therapy" which reduces my testosterone to almost nothing - and one of the side effects is that I can "cry for England" and as I was reading various posts I can across yours - hence more tears.

    Some people find it hard to express themselves and as a grown man people expect me to be strong - and I can be - even with no testosterone - but I have no hesitation if I wish to cry in public and I will do so and feel fine in doing so.

    Thanks for your post with the poem - it's great and to be honest for me - right time right place so thanks again. Also thanks for your kind words.

    Kind Regards - Brian.
