Cancer Poem

Poem About Fear Of Losing Dad To Cancer

My name is Adrianna Smith. I am a 17 year old poet. I've been writing poetry all my life. I love the written word almost as much as I love music. I am a deeply sensitive person and I express my feelings with music, stories, but most of all poems. I am daddy's little angel! I wrote this one when I was 14 years old when my dad was diagnosed with throat cancer.

My daddy has cancer
I don't know what to do
I'm praying that we'll make it through
My daddy has cancer
I want to help somehow
But there is nothing
That I can do for now
My daddy has cancer
And the whole family is sad
Cancer is scary
I don't want to lose my dad
Sometimes at night when I'm awake and all the world's asleep
I'm watching TV and can hear my daddy weep
The cancer is hurting him
I can really tell
Coughing and hacking and being really sick
It's shaken me to the bone, all the way to the core
The doctors say that daddy may never speak again
It is insanity; it's unbelievable
This cancer needs to go
We're searching for a cure so it will go away
If we don't do anything, this unwanted disease will stay
