Silent Killer

I lost my mum to cancer
But hell, he lost his son
There not suppose to go first
They are so very young

I sit here and I wonder
How would I ever cope
Mum’s passing was just too much
Left my heart without a hope

It was so long ago now
And still the pain is sharp
His son has only just gone
Five years they’re been apart

The memories of hurts here
Feel just like yesterday
Those left here without you
Need to live another way

And still I hang onto you
If nothing but your name
I know again I’ll see you
This life is but a game

I’ll hold onto my power
Not let death have its say
We’ll always remember our love
Sweet kiss of yesterday.

    A friend of mine living in Australia recently lost a friend of hers to cancer. Your description is so much like hers. You have good wording and rhyming in this entry.

    Cancer is a most dreaded enemy of us all. Sorry for your loss. Who is the "he" that you speak of in this poem who lost his son?
