Sickness Poem

A woman prays for her sick mother.

One Wish

© Lindsey N. Smith
If I had one last wish to make it would have to be,
that God would heal my mom and give her pain to me.
For I've never seen my mom hurt so bad in all my life,
I'd do anything and everything to take her pain and strife.
She's the only one who never lost complete faith in me,
without her here by my side Im not sure where I'd be.
We didn't always get along but then again who does,
she taught me about the
Real world and what life really was.
I think I owe her one for all the hell I put her through,
so God if you can grant this wish for me I'll eternally be grateful to you.
And if my mom ever decides to ask why her life suddenly changed this way,
do me a favor and let her know that I said Happy late Mother's Day.

  • When I read this poem I realized it is coming to me at a difficult time in my life. My sister is dying of cancer just found out she has 3 months today. We are very close to each other and always been there for each other. I always said if I could take her place for I am the stronger fighting one I would do it under a second. There is no other poem I can think of then this one what would fit for what I think of her, except for my one poem the rose.
    Thanks for sharing this poem with us all.
