Cancer to Blame
To have the greatest family ever known
After so many years you stand here alone.
You try to grieve and let go, after all life isnt forever
But each time the heart crumbles screaming "No never!"
Still years pass just the same
Ignoring the hurt, closure never came
Afraid to accept it and where thier memory may go
Alone and lost, not wanting vulnerablility to show.
Knowing each night as you look up at the stars above
They will forever be remembered because of your love.
You spend your nights and days hating the cancer that took them away
Someone finding a cure is all you pray
Wanting only to be back in the comfort of days gone so long
Hopelessly lost nowhere to turn nor to belong.
Yet one foot keeps being set in front of the other
I carry on regrettably missing the best brother, sister, and mother.
