How Mundane

How mundane it was
Living your life
Letting in the dogs
Weeding the garden

How regular it became
Heading to appointments
Talking about treatments
Accessing your port

How precious it was
To go on that trip
To see that graduation
To have some time

How profound it became
To visit with your friends
To hug your child
To live your life
