Losing the fight

Written by: Carmen Erickson

Will I ever see you,
Again with you're smile.
I don't think I can,
Maybe  not for awhile. 
Will I be okay,
If you died.
I think everyday,
I should have tried. 
I had to be strong for you,
Then a shadow cast,
There was nothing I could do,
Cancer took over too fast. 
I wasn't there,
To see you go,
But you know I care,
Everyday that will show. 
You know I love you,
You're in most things I write.
And I'm sorry too, 
That you lost the fight.
