October 23rd


October 23,2003 is a day that will be forever etched there in my mind

It’s the day my life changed forever, and my old life was left behind

No, it wasn’t my wedding day or even the birthday of my only child

It was the day I was told I had cancer, and sadly it was running wild

My situation as I was told was not good and chances they were slim

But I had a wife and daughter there at home, so this fight I had to win

The treatments were tough and sometimes extremely hard to even bear

But the promise I made to my family was for them I would always be there

Many years have now come and gone and I’m healthy as can be

I tell people that looking back, it was the best thing that ever happened to me

You see, I’m a different man today than I was before this tragic event

I learned how precious life is and what love from family really meant

I look at life’s little things different now than most other people I suppose

Because I had the experience of facing death as it came extremely close

I now live one day at a time and don’t let daily problems drag me down

Because I’ve learned that if you focus to much on them, you will surely drown

So, when you go out today and face the world try thinking only about today

And forget about what you can’t control and most problems might just fade away

From My World to Yours,

Bob Baker
