    The Day My Heart Broke

October 12, 2015, CT results in
pancreatic cancer, Stage 4, terminal
prepare to die, estimated lifespan
now measured in weeks, unexpectedly

“I do” and “till death do us part”
now with unanticipated meaning
more than words, now deeds
to choose or to refuse

Husband mine, beloved
Fiercely devouring our last days
together, no old age for us
holding hands on the porch
