Cheated by Death

Cheated by Death

When the chest pain comes
in the dark of the morning
you greet it with a sigh
that says, "At last."

A momentary hope as you
wait for it to blossom
from a simple ache into
the throb the will engulf all.

And when it dies away you lay
there trembling, knowing
that all there is is to
rise and face another day.
