By Bud Lemire

I have cancer, but I'm in remission
You could say I'm on break to do some fishing
Going to catch me the big one
Sitting here enjoying the warm sun

Just taking a break from the big fight
Enjoying the time in the daylight
I'll take a little walk in the park
Until my world is once again dark

I never gave up on hope
Just always did my best to cope
There are times when I feel down
Yet I'm still hanging around

Bad news is like a hit in the head
I get back up because I'm not dead
Speaking of that, those who have died
Come around me to support and to guide

I keep hoping one day they'll find a cure for sure
So the pain I live in, I won't have to endure
Many times I spend my time wishing
That I am healed, but it's only Remission

Author's Note:
They say there isn't a cure, only remission.
You just have to keep on fighting to live.
Let us hope that one day there will be a cure,
and all the pain and suffering will disappear.
