My Escape to Cancer

This isn’t because you’ve asked me to, it’s only because you cared.
You’ve shared the hills of my life with your own,
Staring out as clouds disappear from your balcony.
With genuine laughter we recount stories of the good ol days,
Made waves as oceans gaze at us two.
It’s you,
That has one key to unlock things no world has ever seen in me.
It’s you,
That has allowed me to explore parts of myself that I never knew.
But it’s not because you’ve asked me to,  It’s only because you were there.
As the night skies fall and we fade into our shells
I’ll think of you,
My Escape to Cancer.
