Life Is A Gift

There’s a man who waits for the test, to see cancer has spread yet. Now he asks why did he wait to live, when it was time to die. He had always been a shy lonely guy. Only a week ago did he break out of his shell. He became more bold, and daring.
If I could have tge time back. Oh how I’d live, he thought. He thought of all the things he could have done.
Knock, knock.
The door opens, and a doctor comes in. He closes the door behind him. His face is grim, and eyes filled with sadness. The man’s heart sinks.
“I’m sorry. But within a few short hours, the cancer will reach your brain, and you’ll die. There’s nothing we can do,” the doctor said sadly. The man hold back his tears. Only now did he realize that each day is a gift. Not a given.
