Hold love ones close to you
Don't stray away whatever you do
Once the time you have is gone it's 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
It's too late
Can things be undone please please
I'll pay any rate
No it's too late
My heart is filled with pain
The tears come down like rain
We can't change things now
But my mind is racing with "what if"
Why can't cancer end like a fairytale or even be a myth
Somebody please take this sorrow
It's too late
Time does not wait

Love you always "Ton"

I was told I have stage 4 colon cancer back in June of 2010. I am still fighting. Your poem has given me more strength in order to keep up that fight as well as have several others on this site.
