I know you called me to you
because you need,

but I'm so afraid to come
because I'll have to walk barefoot

across that field of broken glass
where lies the memory of my mother,

catching sparks of sunlight
as though there were never any sharpness

to slice me open.

Thanks. my ex-sister-in-law has been diagnosed with bowel cancer, which has spread due to it being missed by doctors for quite some time. She's been given 12 months. She's only about 57.
