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.
