Cancer Stole My Friend

©

Published: February 2016

Cancer took my best friend, don't you see?
Time was a ticking bomb thrust in me.
Did black cats traverse my way?
Did bad luck linger over me day to day?
If cancer would have examined my heart,
Would angels be grabbing you to depart?
If I knew our bond was made of an hour glass,
I'd pile stacks of love around your heart, make cancer pass 
To give me those last ticking moments and make them exquisite,
Make our friendship stand on cement for us no longer having to split.
If cancer had any idea what beauty laid within your soul,
I can promise it would have seen the glow.
I saw it the moment we became friends.
Tick...tick...tock...my heart will burst when time ends.
Silence began moments ago,
When a voice said its time to let go.
No!...please!...no!
Tick...
Tick...
Tock...
I could not stop the
Clock...
Cancer stole my
Friend.

I lost my best friend to a brain tumor on the 24th of October 2015, so it's been a year since she's been gone. But, man, it feels like it happened just yesterday, as I still cry to this day thinking of our special moments we had together. This loss has made me alienate myself from the society, because I feel that people don't understand me very well, as all they want to do is have fun and I just want to talk about my "problems" and none of them care to listen, and that's when it hits home that the only person who used to listen to my "stupid" problem is no more. I do want to be around people, but I fail because none of them are that keen to listen to my problems.

I still miss my best friend, and next year I'll be seeing a therapist, I hope therapy will help me recover and ultimately accept that she's no more. This poem helped me. Now I know I'm not the only one in such pain. We've been connected by the pain.

I lost my best friend who was like a sister to me, 7 months ago today. We have been together since nursery. Now I am 18. She was only 17 when she passed away. We would have sleep overs, spend birthdays together, no matter what it was, we did it together. The day that cancer took over her body was the same day my life fell apart because I knew I was going to lose her. Then it came to the day when she passed away. She has been gone for 7 months now. I never thought it was going to be this hard without her. I know that you are looking over me, I hope you are proud of what I have done in these last 7 months. I wish I could bring you back to this world. I will do anything to bring you back hun, I never felts so lost in my life. You are up there with my mam. Please look after her and tell her that I miss her so much i know that I was only 4 when she passed but I will never forget both of you. You two are always in my heart and that is where you will both stay until the day we meet again..xxx
