Loving My Life | CLL Poem

Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

is what I HAD.

I was given IV Rituxan,

it wasn’t too bad.


I sat in a Chemo chair,

and had several types of IV.

I was there for about ten hours,

and I watched TV.


I slept or read

until the IV’s were over.

Then I called my ride,

and said, ” Come on over.”


I soon arrived at home,

and had a late meal.

Then I went to bed,

and slept with zeal.


I didn’t achieve remission,

but I’m doing okay.

I’m living and loving my life,

enjoying each and every day.
