Better Me Than You

There were so many sights I wanted to see So many memories I wanted to make with you But then the cancer got to me Better me than you You deserve to live a long happy life. More than I do. The cancer has gotten worse They haven't found a cure All I can do is lay here dying For my last days of life. I hate laying here and seeing you cry All I can think is Better me than you I have finally taken my last breath My soul sees you sob tears of sorrow My dear there will be a better tomorrow You wish you could've taken my place But no you don't I died with the privilege of being yours And you'll ALWAYS be mine Trust me It was better me than you.

Such devotion and true love. Beautiful poem. My mother died from cancer. This warmed my heart to think of her.
