he went to the doctor because of 

a pain in his chest. 
they gave him a physical and ran every test. 
the doctor told him: 
the results will come back within one week 
then we’ll sit and we’ll speak. 
the results came back, just like he said 
and with it bad news, of which he had dread. 

CANCER! how can that be, i am only thirty three. 
what will happen, what can i do. 
i have a family just like you. 
what will happen to my children 
and my lovely wife, how will she 
survive in this uncertain life? 

two kids to raise and her husband not there. 
what is GOD thinking, does’nt he care. 
i’ll accept death, be it as may. 
but i always dreamt with my children i’d play. 

now with the bad news he had to face the family. 
should he tell them the truth, or tell them a lie. 
but sooner or later he would die. 
that night with tears in his eyes 
he told his family he was going to die. 
the time i have left on this earth only GOD can tell. 
and if i’ll go to heaven, or if i’ll go to hell. 

so while i am here, i want to share my entire life 
with my family, because with you is where i want to be. 
we’re going to do all the things that we’ve 
never done before, like take a trip to the shore. 

all the sports that we wanted to do 
fishing, boating, hunting, hiking 
and just some quality time all alone. 
for i don’t know when i’ll be coming home. 

i want you all to remember this: 
this is not words of good-bye 
for we’ll see each other on the other side.
