I Hate You Cancer


Published by Family Friend Poems August 2009 with permission of the Author.

I hate you I hate you
Oh why can't you see?
How you took my heart and broke it
When you took them from me!

She was my favorite Aunt you see
For only a short time
And then you came and took her
While she was in her prime

She was there to lend a hand
When you thought you had no one at all
But that was until the day
That YOU came to call!

She suffered for so long
And was always in pain
You took a beautiful woman
And made her die in vain

He was my favorite Uncle
No, there is no doubt
And then you came into his life
And ripped my heart right out!

You took a great big man
And made him so small
So when the angels came to get him
It was not him at all!

He worked so hard to fight you
And stay with his kids and wife
But No, you would not leave him
Until you took his life!

You may think you won this time
But just you wait and see
One day, we will be together in heaven
Vickie, Leon and me!

I hate you cancer. My dad has been battling stage 4 bladder cancer for 10 years. The cancer is now spreading and the doctors believe that he only has 3 months to live. I remember being happy when he went into remission; the joy I felt was indescribable. I am now feeling completely devastated. My dad is a good man and he has always put me, my sisters and my mom first in his life. I am not ready for what is to come. I love my dad so much and the thought of losing him kills me. Cancer is and will always be the Devil. My dad does not deserve this. My life will never be the same without him....

I totally relate!....unfortunately. My Mom fought and beat breast cancer almost 20 years ago. Hooray! Then 4 years ago got uterine cancer and beat that too!!! For 3 and 1/2 years. We just found out that it metastasized and has eaten through her L3 disc in her spine. She has undergone aggressive radiation and just started hopefully make a positive difference in the quality of what remains of her life. However long that may be...we don't yet know. My Mom is such a loving and kind woman who hasn't deserved ANY of this!! I hate Cancer with all that I am! My dad just passed from it 2 years ago so she is newly widowed as well! It just isn't fair! And now if we're smart we know that one of us kids will fight this terrifying battle too. CANCER SUCKS!! I'm very sorry for your Father. I will pray for him now too. GOD bless you!

My mother lost her battle to stomach cancer four months ago. I miss her so so much and I think it's not fair. Cancer is a killer, has taken so many lives and has left so many people in pain. It's been so hard without her. I HATE YOU CANCER SO MUCH.

My husband of 17 years has battled cancer on and off for 13 years. He has Refractory Hodgkin's Lymphoma which has recurred 8 times in 13 years. We also had one child, Micheal Tyler Huddleston who battled brain cancer for 19 months before losing his battle. This has been so difficult.
