You were the sun that shines, an encouraging thought
wish I could have been there with you
while the Cancer you fought

I could not escape, a drug habit I could not break
Ashamed, deranged, and full of fear
All I could think about was me being here
Overwhelmed by depression, in great despair
Feeling sorry for myself, thinking, "This is not fair"

You're fighting for your life and I am stuck here without you
Some time has gone by, released from those walls
Now your dead and gone, I live with only memories
and tears that fall
So, learn from your past, the experience you go through
You never know when a loved one will pass
and you can't say, "I Love You!"
