The Diagnosis
I knew I had not been myself, for quite a while now
I knew I needed to tell my doctor, but didn't really know how
The thought of what he might tell, me sent shivers down my spine
I felt deep within my heart, that I wouldn't have much time

The things I took for granted, suddenly meant the world to me
I realized some things were important, that before I could not see 
I made a few changes, a doctors appointment too
I was right  he only gave me, another year, to be here with you

I felt as though a ton of bricks, upon my chest did lay
My whole life flashed before my eyes, when I got the diagnosis today
How do you tell the ones you love, you'll have to leave them soon
How can I face each tomorrow, when it could be the last one with you

I gathered all my loved one's, to tell them what was to come
I just couldn't do it, suddenly my whole body felt numb
I smiled to hide my secret, I can't tell them, no matter how hard I try
Instead I went back to my home, said a prayer, and softly cried
