Here we go again
A restless night
An early morning

We’ll meet there
You bring the journal
I’ll bring the coffee and hot chocolate

First you’ll get your port hooked up
Then the blood draw
Finally, we’ll get an update from doctor

We pray that the plan is working
So that we can do this all over again
In two weeks

Four hours at the hospital
Two hours of chemotherapy
Three days on the pump

Work from home
Down weekend
Pray pray pray

Full week
Good weekend
Play play pray

It’s the routine we live by
The routine we dread
The routine we pray to start over again
