Seven years ago today


Saturday 2nd May


Seven years ago today

Alien blob was cut away


Melanoma diagnosis

Quite a fair prognosis


More surgery to lymph nodes

And that really hurt loads


Biposies, skin graft and scars

All added to my memoirs


Started on a clinical trial

Bloods, obs, scans and checks worthwhile


Lymphoedema a side effect

A small price to pay, I suspect


Sunglasses, big hats and sunscreen

Now preventing the unforeseen


Living with vigilance

To reduce the incidence


Thinking of you my darling

Precious Angel son


Broom from the garden

Porthmeor, West End

Looking towards the Island

Quiet in the harbour

No waves at all
