A silent assassin,
A fly on the wall,
Casually observing and that is all.
Or so we thought,
before we went,
To the doctors, he told us all.
You have a cancer,
Our faces paled,
At the horror of the disease that she held.
The doctor took me to one side,
Whispered for only me to hear,
So the words that chilled my blood didn't reach her ear.
