The day you told us and I tried to remain sane.
" I have breast cancer," you said as a matter of fact,
Yet you didn't shed a single tear you stayed intact.
Through out the radiation, chemo, and pill,
You still smiled and had such a strong will.
Your attitude is what carried you on,
Without it I don't think that you would have lasted as long.
The cancer ate at you like a starved disease,
Killing your insides and slowly bringing you to your knees.
But still through it all you held that smile,
But sometimes I could see it faltered but only for awhile.
I love you mommy with everything I have to offer and give,
Maybe one day they can find a cure and help other people
To still smile and live.
