Please Don't Die

I hoped that there would be more days
I hoped there'd be more years
But this pain I'm feeling within my heart
keeps drawing up these fears

This cancer you have wants to take you away
I don't want to say goodbye
Please Mom, please Mom
please don't die

I know that you can beat this
I know you can somehow 
I need you here with me
I need you here right now

I know you can get through this
Just fight it, just try
Please Mom, please Mom
please don't die

The life you lived upon this earth
was never long enough
You have made it through everything till now
Cause' you have always been so tough

I don't want to have to miss you
I don't want to have to cry
So, Please Mom,  please Mom
please don't die

    First of all I want to thank you for reading my poem and for your heartfelt concern. My mother is not in much pain, but she is still fighting her cancer. She is a strong woman.

    I agree with Andrea, this is heartbreaking, and almost too painful to read. I am sure that this was not an easy subject to write about. Very well done, Roger! I hope your Mom pulled through this...Hugs!
