When cancer struck

Life stopped 

Fear set in

The unknown 

Stretched out 

Endlessly before us

Clinging to hope



So many meds

Yet nothing

Vanquished this 

Ravaging beast

We are left

With limited time 

We hug

We cry

Exploring the depths

Of despair together

And sharing

Some joyful moments  

As time marches on

I know one thing 

I will be with you

By your side

Holding your hand 

With a heavy heart

As you make your way

From this earthly place 

To a better place 

The essence of you

Will be left behind

In my heart

As a keepsake 

Until we meet again 

On the other side 🙏❤️
