The person you love most, your soul mate, is dying from a vile,
rare, painful, incurable cancer. You have to watch on, helplessly,
as she struggles with the mental and physical pain, knowing you can
do nothing to fix it, or take it away from her. She never
complains, or wears her illness like a badge.History is repeating
itself, bringing back similar, painful memories from years ago.
What do you do?Well in reality there is nothing you can do, except
care and love. Do you ask your God for help? Why do bad things
happen to good people?David writes about his feelings of loss,
desolation, and impending loss, sometimes using explicit language.
But also injects humour, because it helps him survive. His thoughts
lead from places and things which inspire, to real heroes, then to
others, some of whom are in positions of authority, and would never
match up, because they bulge with self importance.His thoughts,
sometimes bizarre and banal, through unpretentious verse, short
stories, and biographical episodes, provide an insight as to what
drives him on, taking the lead from his lover and best friend, to
never give up, and to survive.
