Another Unwelcomed Visit
Emotionally distraught appearing almost physically pained
Lashes and cheeks soaked as if it had rained
Again death comes and knocks at my door.
My family so small how could you take more.
Panicked yet determined all hear my cry.
Let me hold my last sibling close, don't let him die.
Cancer again rears it's grimy face.
Breathing alone for him is a race.
Next to me now, no he is not.
Angels please hear me, he's all that I got.
Heal him bring him fully back into health
You may take my last breath for I have no wealth
Hear my prayers, feel my cries.
Openly tears flow from these eyes.
Please have a care help heal our hearts
End this panic before it starts..
Help me bring my brother home where love can help mask his pain..
A path with obstacles that need to be slain
Scurrying away from humanity's drain
We need each other close where we shall remain
