Cancer Poem

Words Shared At A Gravesite

I wrote this poem after visiting my friend's mother's grave. She died almost a year ago from cancer. She had a family who loved her and she still had her whole life ahead of her.

Best Friend's Mother

Published: September 2016

I sat by your grave today
And just let the world go astray.
I didn't know what to do,
So I sat there and thought of you.

I really wish that you could see,
Just how much you meant to me.
Even though we had to part,
You will always be in my heart.

Your children are growing fast,
Not like they were in the past.
Both so different than last year,
They have changed a lot since you left here.

Before you left you were in some pain.
I know I will see you once again.
We really miss you, we really care,
And we know you are watching us from up there.

It was hard for me to let you die,
I didn't get to say goodbye.
