Cancer Poem

I wrote this the week my sister passed from a fight with cancer. I will always miss her and try everday to deal with the pain.

Hold love ones close to you
Don't stray away whatever you do
Once the time you have is gone itís gone
And the feeling is unbearable
Time waits on no one
I keep telling myself not today
All day I pray
Help me god! Help me god! Help me!
Can we go back please God let me
Itís too late
Can things be undone please please
Iíll pay any rate
No itís too late
My heart is filled with pain
The tears come down like rain
We canít change things now
But my mind is racing with ďwhat ifĒ
Why canít cancer end like a fairytale or even be a myth
Somebody please take this sorrow
Itís too late
Time does not wait

Love you always ďTonĒ
