Ring The Bell

16 March 2018

At the end of chemo or radiation
They call it graduation.
All staff and caregivers congregate
With the patients to celebrate.

No polite decorum for me.
It's not about dignity,
Nor preserving serenity.
I'm making the most of this opportunity.

The young Mademoiselle,
With more meaning than she could tell,
Cried as she rang the bell.

After weeks of nausea hell,
With a rebel yell,
He grabbed the rope and rang the bell.

Hoping all would be well,
For quite a spell
The child rang the bell.

Let the bell of hope ring loud and long
As we celebrate becoming strong;
Strong enough to face cancer as beginners
And come out the other side as winners.
