Cry Poetry

poems for life and letting go

by Tom Brown

How to respond when doctors tell you
six months maybe twelve
Excuse me sir there must be
some mistake
you cannot sentence life
for good behaviour

When Tom Brown's wife was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, he found himself writing poems to get him through the dark nights. This remarkable sequence chronicles the final months of a woman named Margaret, sharing not only fear and pain, but wonder and grace, as a father and his sons care for her at home.
