Re: I Miss mY Eyelashes

Lorraine,

Loved the poem and so true! I think I missed my eyebrows even more than the lashes. I remember looking into the mirror one morning, hairless, expressionless without my brows to frame my face. I recall saying out loud, "Man, I look like a St. Jude's kid." It was the moment I realized I was sick....really sick. I had cancer. Shit.
